Swedish Vehicle Callsign Identifiers

There exists a somewhat common practice in the Swedish Army for vehicle crews to apply some paint/tape to their vehicles to indicate what their callsign is, presumably to make coordination easier and avoid miscommunication.

System

These callsigns are specified in what is called a FAL-A (Fasta Anropssignaler för Lägre förband inom Armén) sheet. Not all of these callsigns are used in practice, for example; a rifle platoon does not commonly contain 9 squads, even though they exist on FAL-A.

Each (tactically common) callsign is suffixed by the first letter of the parent organization callsign.

Prefix Unit Prefix Unit Prefix Unit
P HQ Company A 1st Platoon E 1st Squad
Q 1st Company B 2nd Platoon F 2nd Squad
R 2nd Company C 3rd Platoon G 3rd Squad
S 3rd Company D 4th Platoon H 4th Squad
T 4th Company E 5th Platoon I 5th Squad
