Atlantic Air Combat Font

A specific font is designed for Atlantic Air Combat for branding purposes - it should be used on the top of each web page, as illustrated here, even if the size may vary.  It's made of capital letters only, numbers and perhaps special characters or symbols

The font is illustrated below with additional details.   The size shown is H=19 pixels illustrating "non bold" font

The font proportions are those illustrated : if H=19 then W=20.   So it's not square  A few digits have a special size :

the letter i if H=19  then  W= 4
the number 1 if H=19  then  W= 12

The kerning would be as folows (illustrated at the top of this page)

space between letter or numbers 0.25 x width of a letter or number - no special kerning for "i" nor "1", etc
blank space 1.00 x width of a letter or a nomber (without additional spacing)


Numbers are shown in two variants : "C" and "H" - one has to be abandoned

if we were to choos the "H" variant for numbers, the "9S" is better (it's an inverted 6 "H" looking nicer than the 9 "H" which has too small a head
