Temporary notes : Squadrons

In March 1962, a modified serial numbering system was introduced, in an attempt to disguise the number of aircraft currently Rhodesian service - an increasingly important issue as a good number of these aircraft were obtained illegally. Apparently random 4-figure serial with the prefix R were applied to all current and newly acquired aircraft, e.g. Hunter R8122. In fact the new numbers were based on the old 3-digit numbering system, but with an additional number inserted in a certain pattern to give a 4-digit serial. The additional number was the Squadron number, except for the Hunter which used 8 instead of 1. The R prefix was later deleted.
