Arshan Equipment & Vehicle Designations
Within the Arshanov Federation, devices, vehicles, and other equipment used by the military or government are given specific designations consisting of a sequence of letters, a number, and a name. The letters signify the item's exact purpose, role, or function, the model number, and its sequence within its general group. The name is simply a designated title used to quickly reference a specific piece of equipment.
The exact meanings of specific sequences of letters depend on the context and category. For example, the letter 'A' designates a standard select-fire assault weapon when tagged to a rifle or other weapon but refers to an attack fighter when labeled to a strike craft.
