AAC Summary
Fighter Squadrons
Missile Squadrons
Bomber & ASW Squadrons
Transport & Utility Squadrons

With Atlantic Air Combat focusing on a very narrow period and a selection of aircrafts, not all RAF aircrafts will be considered within AAC, not even all variants operated during the period at stake.  Regarding the notion of "squadron", the AAC RAF could be based on those referred to in these selected summaries.

 
 AAC Summary : Supermarine Spitfire (WWII vintage, late use)
Not relevant to the 1963-1967 time frame but since other operators will be involved or cheated in the game, AAC may refer to the FR24 (S356) in a single "Reserve Squadron" like the 602 or the 603

Gloster G41 Meteor (day fighters)
Not relevant to the AAC time frame, although one RAF squadron did operate the F8 for target tug duties (like the Belgian Air Force) till 1970.  Since the type is to be made available for the Argentinian Air Force, one RAF squadron with a mix of F8 and R9.

Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAM) and Balistic Missiles (IRBM) Squadrons
A very different subject to be tackled separately.  In short, the Thor and associated Bloodhound sites need to be defined as NATO assets and WAPA targets, thus not "disbanded" like in real life (only a selection shown)

Bombers - Valiant / Victor / Vulcan

The V706 Valiant is not essential.  The type was grounded by the end of 1964, let's keep it that way (thus not shown in this condensed summary)
The HP80 Victor will be present in the following formats : H8B1 when used as a conventional bomber (various pre-defined bomb loads)
H8B2 when used as a Blue Steel missile launcher
H8R2 when used as a recce platform (cheated from 1963)
H8K1 AI driven refueling tanker (cheated from 1963)
The A698 Vulcan will be present in the following formats : A6B1 when used as a conventional bomber (various pre-defined bomb loads)
A6B2 when used as a Blue Steel missile launcher
