Russ although there is a clear structure to FV numbers that relate to a particular specification for a vehicle, there seems to be no obvious structure to other FV numbers used to identify a part or bodywork to a vehicle.


FV numbers related to a design specification or drawing number laid down by the Chief Engineer, Fighting Vehicles Design Dept of the Ministry of Supply.


As far as vehicle bodywork goes the numbers were issued chronologically, but for vehicle components these were issued in blocks to be used by different manufacturers involved in the project.


Although it is usually possible to cross relate a FV no to a NSN or to an earlier VAOS part no, it doesn't usually convey any usable information that one might glean from a stores item code rather than a design specification code. Although it is true that components themselves often only bear a FV no.
