Up until 1934, Swiss military aircraft were allocated a simple three digit numerical serial number. After this date a letter was added to the serial indicating the aircraft’s main role: A = Transport, B = Bomber/Photo Survey, C = Reconnaissance, J = Fighter, U = Trainer, V = Observation/Liaison; eg: Vampire J-1005.

In ‘peacetime’ the Berufsfliegerkorps (Professional Aviation Corps) and the Kommando Lufttransport (Air Transport Command) are the only full time operational units – called the Einsatz Luftwaffe. The remaining staffeln are reserve units, called up at intervals during the year for deployment to their wartime bases. At other times, refresher and continuation training is carried out at the major bases.
