The aircraft designations used by the Swedish armed forces consist of a set
of letters to indicate the role, and a number to indicate an aircraft type,
with a space between them.  A letter may be added after the number to
indicate subtypes.

The numbers are assigned in a single sequence for all types of aircraft.
The same number is always used for the same basic aircraft type, but the
prefix may be changed to indicate different roles.

Role codes (these may be combined, e.g. "JA" for fighter/attack):

    A   = Attack
    B   = Bomb
    Fpl = Flygplan (aeroplane; used for multirole light aircraft)
    Hkp = Helikopter
    J   = Jakt (fighter)
    S   = Spaning (reconnaissance)
    SF  = Spaning foto (photographic reconnaissance)
    SH  = Spaning havsövervakning (maritime reconnaissance)
    Sk  = Skol (trainer)
    T   = Torped (torpedo bomber) (obsolete)
    Tp  = Transport

The following types are currently in Swedish service:

    Hkp 3                 = Agusta/Bell AB-204 Iroquois
    Hkp 4                 = Boeing/Kawasaki KV-107 Sea Knight
