Zulu Time

Is there someone out there that knows the time zones and can explain Zulu time?

Zulu (short for “Zulu time”) is used in the military and in navigation generally as a term for Universal Coordinated Time (UCT), sometimes called Universal Time Coordinated ( UTC ) or Coordinated Universal Time (but abbreviated UTC), and formerly called Greenwich Mean Time.


Nice plagiarism copy and pasting!


Called the art of copy and paste. :)


Where in the world is Zulu time absolute? Its currently 1900 zulu time which would be 7pm EST where i live. But its actually 1400 Zulu time which is 2pm EST. So if an IF event is say 2100 Zulu for me that would actually be 1600 Zulu meaning 4pm? Am I correct ?

This post could help you understand everything. :)


Zulu time follows GMT (Greenwich mean time) or British time, but it doesn’t change to accommodate daylight savings (so it won’t +1 hour during summer months).
