  1. NATO reporting name

    "NATO reporting names" are a system of code names used by NATO to denote military aircraft and other equipment used by the militaries of Russia, the rest of the former Soviet Union, other former Warsaw Pact countries and China, as well as other countries that use such weaponry. The system assists military communications by providing short, one or two-syllable names, as alternatives to the precise proper names – which may be easily confused under operational conditions and/or are unknown in the western world.The assignment of reporting names is managed by the Air Force Interoperability Council (AFIC), previously known as the Air Standardization Coordinating Committee or ASCC), which is separate from NATO. Based in Washington DC, AFIC comprises representatives from the militaries of three NATO members (Canada, the United Kingdom and United States) and two non-NATO countries (Australia and New Zealand). When the system was introduced, in the 1950s, reporting names also implicitly designated potentially hostile aircraft. However, since the end of the Cold War, some NATO air forces have operated various aircraft types with reporting names, (e.g. the "Fulcrum" (Mikoyan MiG-29).


  1. NATO reporting name

    NATO reporting names are code names for military equipment of the Eastern Bloc and China. They provide unambiguous and easily understood English language words in a uniform manner in place of the original designations — which may have been unknown at the time or easily confused codes. NATO maintains lists of these names and whereas the assignment of the names for the Russian and Chinese aircraft was once managed by the five-nation Air Standardization Coordinating Committee. This is no longer the case.
