List of aircraft assigned to the Analysis Division of Air Technical Service Command, based at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. The “T’ was for “Technical”, with T2 denoting Technical Intelligence (for evaluating foreign aircraft).

By December 1945, the Air Technical Intelligence collection and evaluation process for Luftwaffe technology officially transferred from London to Wright Field . In March 1946, Air Technical Service Command became Air Material Command. It was around this time the "FE" numbers assigned to captured Luftwaffe' and Japanese aircraft became "T2" numbers, T-2 being the organization designator for Air Technical Intelligence. The prefix "FE" changed to "T2" or "T-2," but the inventory numbers did not change. This probably reflected the organizational changes taking place.[1]
