Militärische Abkürzungen





A|B|C|D|E|F|G|H|I|J|K|L|M|N|O|P|Q|R|S|T|U|V|W|X|Y|Z






Updates erfolgen auf dieser Seite jeden Monat. Diese Militärabkürzungen sind hauptsächlich aus den Jane's Anleitungen von ATF und AH-64D Longbow, Longbow 2, aber auch Delta Force. Da ich mir nicht jeden Tag ein neues Spiel von Jane's und Electronic Arts kaufe, kann es auch länger dauern, bis dieses Lexikon weiter fortgeführt werden kann. Da einige Abkürzungen doppelt auftreten, sind diese ebenfalles alphabetisch geordnet.
