And I'm not sure about aircraft.
Aircraft are designated according to the intended mission of the aircraft.
A= attack aircraft
B= bombers
C= cargo
E= electronic countermeasure
F= fighter
H= helicopter
O= observaton
P= patrol
R= reconnaisance
S= anti-submarine or special mission
T= trainer
U= utility
V= vertical/short take-off
X= experimental
Y= prototype

I think I remembered them all.

Descriptions of missions have changed over the years, but aircraft are still described this way.
