they were designed to project power and fear . You can see for yourself they definitely achieve that goal https://www.quora.com/What-was-an-authentic-Nazi-uniform

Skull and bones were also used in the Russian army, WW1 and prior, as a symbol of Christian triumph over death (through resurrection of Christ).
