This true type font (TTF) is a pretty accurate representation of the codes used on German aircraft in World War II. It was made according to RLM prescribtions of late 1943.

The code system used on Luftwaffe aircraft was as follows:

Two characters, a Balkenkreuz (Cross) and two letters. The first two characters indicated the Geschwader (Squadron) and can be two letters or a letter-number mix. The third character (directly to the right of the cross) indicated the individual aircraft, while the last character indicated the Staffel/Gruppe (Wing) to which the aircraft belonged.

For example 9K+EH was aircraft number E of the first Staffel (denoted by "H") of Kampfgeschwader 51 (denoted by "9K").

Towards the end of World War II the squadron code ("9K" in the example above) was painted in a smaller size than the last two characters. This is represented in the TTF by using small characters. The large codes are created by using the Shift or Caps-lock key. Small numbers are created by using Shift.

Thank you so much! This works perfectly with Cricut Design Space for creating masks for scale models. This appears to be very accurate. Keep up the good work!
