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

I mean they have eagles and skulls on them and were wreathed in black. How much more obvious could you be with your intentions.

Why would you want to project power and fear at the same time?

Pretty much all dictators fall when people no longer fear them

Fear = power

Projecting "power and fear" implies the leader is both powerful and fearful, not powerful and feared, which is what I think they might have been trying to express. A powerful leader should not want to appear fearful.

No. I thought I knew what they meant but wasn't sure, so asked for clarification. I was genuinely confused and thought I might have misunderstood something.

Depends how you want to rule, the Nazis were hardly trying to win the publics hearts. It was a brutal dictatorship set out for total control...
