Lists of US Military Aircrafts  -  AAC Internal Document


For reasons of  convenience, two Wikipedia Lists of US Military Aircrafts is partly reproduced here, togeter with a list of Helicopters.  Regarding helicopters, their designation evolved with early machines receiving a "R" for Rotor designation before it changed to "H" for Helicopter.  In 1962, helicopter designation adopted a mission code with "H" only remaining as a suffix (eg: AH: Attack Helicopter, CH: Cargo, SH: Anti-Submarine, UH: Utility, etc)

  • 0 helicopters R-1 to R-17 were renamed H-1 to H-17

  • 2 helicopters having received an USN ID did not all translate into the H serie (eg: HSL, HSJ) - see helicopters in the Naval table

  • 6 helicopters received a reassigned "H" number in 1962

  • 0 not all helicopters entered the military naturally and are thus not mentioned here
