Aircraft which were awarded an FE (Foreign Equipment) code by the USAAF after their capture. The FE codes were not restricted to enemy aircraft though: British aircraft that were tested in the USA received a FE-code too (e.g. Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VII EN474 that received code FE-400). The alloted numbers were not unique as somewhere in 1945, when the number of FE-coded aircraft rose significantly, some aircraft were assigned new numbers while other aircraft got old numbers (e.g. FE-300, first used on an Italian Macchi C.202 and later on a Japanese J8M1 Shusui)
