Fuselage Types
an  expert  can  be  expected  to  know  and  recognize them  all.  Bombers,  fighters,  fighter-bombers,  and reconnaissance  planes  may  be  propeller-driven  or  jet, single-  or  multi-engine,  straight-wing,  delta-wing, swept-wing,  or  combinations  of  these,  and  various other descriptions. Instruction  in  identification  of  aircraft  should consist  primarily  of  classroom  lectures,  slides,  and motion pictures, together with on-the-job instruction when aircraft are operating in the ship's vicinity. With each advance in aeronautical engineering and design, aircraft are able to fly higher and faster. High- speed characteristics tend to make aircraft of different nations  look  very  much  alike,  thus  increasing  the difficulty  of  in-flight  identification.  For  the  foregoing reasons, shipboard recognition training should stress ability  to  recognize  aircraft  likely  to  be  seen  in  a local  rather  than  a  worldwide  area  of  deployment. Determination  of  the  friendly  or  unfriendly  character of aircraft is a prime function of the ship's installed IFF system, which can be used to interrogate aircraft long before the craft are within visual range. Exact names and designations may prove unimportant but personnel  should  be  taught  to  distinguish  between the  various  classes  of  aircraft—bombers,  fighters, reconnaissance,  transport,  pilotless,  and  so  forth. Airplanes,  like  automobiles  and  people,  do  differ, and their underlying differences can be detected. Basic aircraft recognition features follow: 1. Fuselage. The fuselage is the main body of the aircraft  where  all  equipments  required  for  control  are located  and  to  which  the  wings  and  tail  units  are attached. The foremost part of the fuselage is the nose. Various types of fuselages are shown in figure 32. 74
