Evyl:- Bird is the code word for a surface to air missile, not an aircraft.

 

the term you are looking for is Bandit. although Rat,Rat fink and Zombie are all fine as well (codes for aircraft states ie:  Fighter, Bomber and non engaging Hostile)

I thought it was "vampire" if in the sea and its automatically registered as anti-ship missile.

 

oh well. EDITED.

Vampire is air to surface 

Bird is surface to air

Air to surface is bruiser

surface to surface is bulldog - general

Vampire is hostile surface to surface missile heading towards you

I am cheating Eyvl - I have the international Combined Forces Brevity Code manual, so I can access the brevity code for just about anything

I'll give you a few more:

 

You don't use the "clock" to indicate where a contact is you use a relative bearing.

To port is always red, to stbd is always green.

0 is ahead, 90 on the beam, 180 astern.

Target 45 degrees on your port bow would be at red 45.

Target 135 degrees on your stbd quarter would be at green 135.

 

Ship to Ship measurements are taken bridge to bridge (not center of mass).

Beam/aBeam - level with the side of the ship - Port or Stbd Beam

 

Bow is also used to indicate up to 45 degrees to port or stbd ahead of the beam.

e.g. a target on your port bow is between red 45 and right ahead.

 

Quarters - 45 deg aft of the beam or greater - I.E. Port or Stbd Quarter

e.g. a target on your stbd quarter is between 135 degrees to stbd and astern of you.

will still try to add that despite being annoying. the second a-POI-calypse passed, didn't it?

 

EDITING NAO.

 

EDITED.

 

I still feel a bit bad for the helm and navigation to memorize those things for general navigation or salt dogs that took it to heart.

its easy to remember then Evyl. Most of the terms are used every hour of every day, I still use them today, even though I have been retired from the NAVY for 4 years. Deck, bulkhead, deckhead, Heads (Toilets) are just some. There are names for different foods, ports you go into, drinks you have, names of friends and work mates, and the list goes on.

Fore, middle(main), aft or mizzen depending on the ship.

 

Halve mast-flag lowered halve way down the mast as a means of paying respect.
