Soviet/Russian/Ukrainian Aircraft and Missile Designations

Here I have attempted to compile a list of all types of aircraft used, purchased, planned, or proposed by the Soviet, Russian, or Ukrainian aircraft design bureaus.

I have also included the designations for missiles.

I will try to keep this list as accurate and current as possible. However, the list as it now is by no means complete, and I welcome you to mail any contributions, corrections, or suggestions to me.


An - Antonov
MiG - Mikoyan-Gurevich
Be - Beriev
M - Myasishchev
Il - Ilyushin
Su - Sukhoi
Ka - Kamov
Tu - Tupelov

AS - Air to Surface Missiles SS-N - Naval Surface to Surface Missiles SUW-N - Naval Surface to Underwater Missiles
