New tires, what does H/V mean?

i just bought a new set of 31x10.5 Mud Dawgs, and it says on the tire "Radial H/V". i've never seen this particular code, does anyone know what it means? i've searched the internet, and while i can find other tires with the code, no description for what it means. any help? (let me know if u need a picture)

My best guess is that it has something to do with the speed rating. I have never seen such a rating before, but speed rating H and V are close together as far as top speed goes. Sorry for not having a definitive answer.

If it's not in the size or small stamping, it's not technical related. Probably just the name they picked for the tire.
