The dividing line between aircraft and missiles (or unmanned aerial vehicles), has not always been clearly expressed in the designation systems. At times vehicles which were clearly missiles, were classified within aircraft series and, conversely, some winged ‑ but remotely controlled ‑ vehicles, were classified as missiles.

Over time US military missiles have been designated in a variety of ways with frequent overlaps from one designation system to another. The following notes briefly describe these systems as well as lists the various designations in table form. It is not the intention to discuss missiles in the same detail as aircraft, unless a missile has been included in an aircraft designation series.

For a detailed discussion on US military rockets and missiles, reference is made to the work of A. Parsch.

Prior to 1948 the Air Force used the GB (Glide Bomb), JB (Jet Bomb) and VB (Vertical Bomb) classifications for missiles.

Table 3: Vertical Bomb

In addition the aircraft designations BQ, CQ and OQ have included some vehicles which could be considered as missiles or unmanned aerial vehicles.


On 30 April 1947 a joint service system of missile designation was introduced, consisting of a three letter code indicating the type of missle, followed by the letter N (for Navy), A (for Air Force) or G (for Army), followed by a sequence number. The various designations were

AAM – Air‑to‑air missile

AGM – Air‑to‑ground missile

AIM – Air intercept missile

ASM – Air‑to‑surface missile

AUM – Air‑to‑underwater missile

CTV – Control Guidance test vehicle

FTV – Flight test vehicle

LTV – Launch test vehicle

PTV – Propulsion test vehicle

RTV – Research vehicle

SAM – Surface‑to‑air missile

SSM – Surface‑to‑surface missile

SUM – Surface‑to‑underwater missile


The Air Force designations used in this designation system are listed in table 4.

Table 4: Air Force missiles (1947 system)

During the same period and until 1951, some Air Force missiles were rated as research vehicles and were designated with an MX number.

In March 1951 the Air Force decided to distinguish between ‘robot aircraft’ and ‘guided rockets’. Robot aircraft were initially included in aircraft designations (in particular the B, F and X series).

At a later date it was decided to use more specific letters in the designation of missiles. In doing so, the numerical series established by the B series was continued although none of the later missiles were ever assigned a ‘B’ designation and were, often, not equipped to perform ‘bomber missions’.

The designations used were:

AGM – Air‑to‑ground missile

AGR – Air‑to‑ground rocket

GAM – Guided aircraft missile

GAR – Guided aircraft rocket

IM – Interception missile

RM – Reconnaissance missile

SM – Strategic missile

TM – Tactical missile


GAR‑1              Hughes Falcon (became AIM‑4)

GAR‑2              Hughes Falcon  (became AIM‑4)

GAR‑3              Hughes Falcon (became AIM‑4)

GAR‑4              Hughes Falcon  (became AIM‑4)

GAR‑5              Hughes Falcon (not built)

GAR‑6              Hughes Falcon (nuclear warhead)


GAR‑8              Philco Sidewinder (became AIM‑9)

GAR‑9              Hughes Falcon (became AIM‑47)


GAR‑11             Hughes Falcon  (became AIM‑4)

Table 5: GAR


It is understood that the Air Force revised and extended its missile designation system in late 1961. The new system included all kinds of unmanned aerospace vehicles, including satellites and spacecraft and the following designation letters have been listed:

Vehicle Type:

G – Booster

J – Spacecraft

M – Missile

P – Probe

R – Rocket

S – Satellite

Missile Launching Method:

A – Aircraft

C – Coffin

G – Ground Vehicle

H – Silo

M – Multiple

P – Soft Pad

R – Railroad Car

S – Space


B – Communications

C – Cargo and Logistic Supply

E – Early Warning

I – Intercept

K – Tanker

N – Test

P – Propulsion

Q – Target

R – Reconnaissance

S – Strategic

W – Weather

X – Research


It is not known in which sequence the letters were supposed to be used (although Launch Method-Mission-Vehicle Type seems reasonable), or what numbering scheme was intended (e.g. one global sequence, or one per vehicle type). Because this designation system was effective only for a very short period of time, it has remained essentially unknown.



The Navy initially designated missiles in a separte system not unlike the aircraft system but with the initial letter K indicating a missile. The designations in this system were

KA – Pilotless target aircraft

KD – Target drone

KG – Pilotless ground target aircraft

KS – Pilotless ship target aircraft

KU – Pilotless submarine target aircraft

On 30 April 1947 the Army adopted the joint service designation system, as described earlier.

By 1951, the Army started to use the service letter A instead of G. Also the designations RV for research vehicle and TV for training vehicle were introduced. The system was further modified by adopting a single numerical series irrespective of the type of the missile.

On 18 September 1962 a tri‑service designation system for missiles, rockets and probes was introduced. The designation consisted of three letters or which the first letter indicated the launch environment:

A          Air

B          Multiple environment

C          Coffin

F          Individual

G          Runway

H          Silo stored

L          Silo launched

M         Mobile

P          Soft pad

R          Ship

U          Underwater


The second letter indicates the mission:


D          Decoy

E          Electronics

G          Surface attack

I           Interception

Q          Drone

T          Training

U          Underwater attack

W         Weather


The final letter indicates the vehicle:


M         Missile

N          Probe

R          Rocket


A sequential number is assigned within each type of vehicle.
