List of military time zones

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Military time zones are defined in the ACP 121(I) standard,[1] which is used by the armed forces for Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, and many other nations. The names are identical to the NATO phonetic alphabet.

Going east from the prime meridian at Greenwich, letters "Alpha" to "Mike" (skipping "J", see below) represent the 12 time zones with positive UTC offsets until reaching the international Date Line. Going west from Greenwich, letters "November" to "Yankee" represent zones with negative offsets.

The letters are typically used in conjunction with military time. For example, 6:00 a.m. in zone UTC−5 is written "0600R" and spoken "zero six hundred Romeo".

Time zone name Designation letter Offset
Alpha Time Zone A +1
Bravo Time Zone B +2
Charlie Time Zone C +3
Delta Time Zone D +4
Echo Time Zone E +5
Foxtrot Time Zone F +6
Golf Time Zone G +7
Hotel Time Zone H +8
India Time Zone I +9
Kilo Time Zone K +10
Lima Time Zone L +11
Mike Time Zone M +12
November Time Zone N −1
Oscar Time Zone O −2
Papa Time Zone P −3
Quebec Time Zone Q −4
Romeo Time Zone R −5
Sierra Time Zone S −6
Tango Time Zone T −7
Uniform Time Zone U −8
Victor Time Zone V −9
Whiskey Time Zone W −10
X-ray Time Zone X −11
Yankee Time Zone Y −12
Zulu Time Zone Z 0

The system apparently originates from Nathaniel Bowditch's 1802 American Practical Navigator book,[citation needed] where time zones were labelled with letters and "J" was skipped[2] to avoid confusion with "I"[citation needed].

The letter "J" ("Juliet"), originally skipped, may be used to indicate the observer's local time.[3]

The letter "Z" ("Zulu") indicates Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
