Well, they all vary, some I can name off the top of my head are CNV for Convoy used by the USN. There’s also PAT for Priority Air Transport. Air Transport / Mobility (C-17’s and such) use RCH (Reach), and lastly, CGX is used for Coast Guard ops.

The Air Force really won’t have a general ICAO code, most of it varies my squadron. Like how the 2nd BW Squadron for B-52’s use DUECE52 or the USN and VF-16 with PELCN06 (Pelican 06).

Thanks so much!

Kamryn, what you listed are callsigns (not entirely sure if that’s what OP wanted but I don’t know either).

If you head to the ICAO site I’ve linked below, you will be able to insert an aircraft manufacturer and it’ll list their aircraft. For example, if you type in “General Dynamics,” all F16s will come up.

If you don’t want to do that much work, the site below has a compiled list of basically all aircraft that have had an ICAO identifier.

Could be either or, I believe he was leaning more toward what ICAO Code each sector of the military uses, both are helpful though.

One commonly used by all branches is Reach/RCH

Hi @Rsam47

in this topics opening post is a spreadsheet linked that has all Airbases with their ICAO codes for the IF inventory of airframes.
Not a complete US airbase list, but complete for IF.
