Isn't 99 the NSN code for the USA?

I don't have the list handy to refer to and working from memory is always risky!

Nope, 99 is the country code for the UK.

The US used 00 until they exhausted their possible numbers around 1974. After that, they went to 01, and are well on the way to using those up. After that they have reserved from 02 to 10.

They look very much like Daimler ferret drivers side periscope brow pads to me.

So while we are at it, Is "00" the code for USA origin?

Thanks to all

Yes. The NSN numbering system was a modification of the US federal stock number (FSN) system. The addition of the 00 in between the stock class and the part number made a FSN into a NSN.

'99' is the UK...

...and some wag assigned '66' as the country code for Australia.

Chris.

'99' is UK. The key to this question is the 9ASC mark. This identifies the primary application and could well be Ferret but I cannot confirm that. 9ACR is FV430 family and 9GWRP is Saxon if that helps anyone !

Hi David,
9ASC is definitely the code for Ferret parts.

So... You guys are calling these NSN numbers. When I was in uniform they were called (rightly or wrongly) Nato numbers. Please enlighten me.

NATO STOCK NUMBER =NSN

There is a Wikopedia article that calls them National Stock Number in the USA. Even so, NSN will work there too.

Funny enough, when I was in AFG Task Force 66 was the Aussie SF.

A NATO unclassified document (Oct 1996) which lists the codes is headed:

"Table 13: NATO Code for NCB (NCB Code)

A Code which identifies the country assigning the NATO item identification number, or NAMSA, as the assignor of a NAMSA Management Control Number."

Clear as mud!! Never have worked out what NCB actually 'expands to in full: 'NATO Code B...?' (or how you get NAMSA from NATO Item ID, for that matter). Any ideas on that, Rob?

Australia lists equipment under a DSN - Defence Stock Number, which is essentially the NSN 'rebranded' as a DSN.

NCB is National Codification Bureau.

There is a good basic writeup on NSNs here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_Stock_Number
