Germany WW II Designation System

  The Use of this started prior to WW II (World War 2 (1939-1945) the system was used also after for some design groups the allocation of these partly were allocated in batches to some designers and were prefixed with Manufactors codes but with some exceptions,


When upgrades are done to the design these were sometimes allocated 100 point higher ie Do-17 to Do-217.
