The answer to this puzzle is an image.
Could you figure it out?
There is land below the images.

military letters (X-Ray, Charlie, Tango, Oscar, Hotel) and maybe a rotation pattern: X (1 time), C (8 times), T (2 times), O (2 times), H (4 times).
My guess so far is that it has to be
another phonetic letter.
If the letters correspond to numbers, tallying them up, dividing by 26 and taking the remainder (20), gets another Tango. I have the feeling that's not the solution but I wanted to throw it out there.
I don't quite have it, but I suspect the image is:
related to a map of India, something like this where the dots line up with specific cities. The question mark would be an image representing a phonetic letter that indicates another city that matches the pattern of letters/pictures/locations. I just can't quite make it work out.
Piggybacking on Lucas' idea
The pictures appear to be phonetic letters.
Those dots appear to be city marks from Google Maps (or similar)
is the inside of an eye . . . or "I" which is India
Appears to be approximately "~" a map of India rotated on its side.
Land underneath also implies that it's a map or dealing somehow with geography.
What I'm missing:
I can't quite get the scale to work out or the angle right to make the letters line up with cities that start with or use those letters. I'm also not sure how the rotation or duplication of the images tie in. Two Oscars might be a city with two o's in the name, but I don't see anything with eight c's. The rotation might lead to the angle of rotation of the map.
