Newbie question concerning UserString fields

Post by L_Wilf » Thu Sep 07, 2017 10:58 am

Greetings everybody, may I ask for a bit of clarification? Maybe this is self-evident, but not to me.

In the database file there are fields named UserString 4 and 5, with single-character values.
AFAIK UserString 4 has values like M for military, E for Enterprise etc. What are all the possible values of UserString4 and their exact meanings (e.g. what does X stand for?).

If my presumption is correct, one could use those values for sorting by aircraft type/usage? Also, what is the meaning of UserString5 values that go like R and B and J?
Will be most grateful for an explanation.
