History of the Tri-Service System

We have covered the Tri-Service System, a naming convention applied to aircraft and missiles, in three previous questions. The first described the system used for aircraft and compared the current system to previous ones used by the Army Air Corps and Navy. Another question dealt with some of the more notable exceptions to the standrad system that have cropped up since its inception. We also explained the system as it is applied to rockets and missiles. Each of these past discussions indicates that the Tri-Service System was adopted in 1962.
