These are Military terms:

All I can think of is Vehiculo?? but I can't find Cabo any where, I take it that it is a military rank of some sort?

Cabo is Corporal


Explanation:
Cabo 1° would be Corporal First Class, but I don't think that "First class" is used for Corporals in English. It would normally apply to Private First Class, but not to non commissioned personnel.
