QPL-83420 Quick Reference Guide*

Military Specification Cable is often designated in RFP's and RFQ's by the Government Designation, a series of numerical designations to specify the Type, Composition, and Diameter of the required aircraft cable. These designations are published in the QPL-83420, but not in any clear order for quick reference.

*This is just a reference guide. You should always refer to the actual QPL-83420 on my web site for the current Government Designations of Military Specification Stainless and Galvanized Aircraft Cable; and

The Government designation can refer to the same cable but in different put-ups and/or jacket diameters. When in doubt, call a Loos & Co., Inc Product manager with the description of the aircraft cable you need and we can provide you with the cross referenced call out and complete product information
