  • I have a question for other users: Should we add an "Era" sub-heading or do you think that would be overkill? It might be overkill, but it would also be educational and potentially useful. Markc 02:52, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Soviets[edit source]

Soviet military planes were mostly called by bureau abbreviation and index, Tu-95, MiG-29, Su-27, etc. There were few nick-names, but that's rather internal knowledge, plus actually in Russian. One might take NATO reporting names, as they have some logic (f- for fighter, b- for bomber, one syllable for prop, two syllable for jet, etc.), but is this true Soviet? Modern-day projects have some fancy names after American counterpart, but they are scarce and mostly lame.

Civilian Aircraft[edit source]

A more peaceful naming scheme will limit reputation risk if your computers hit national news.
