  • TGU Question

    What is TGs date format ?

    Do we use the standard military: day / time Z / month / year ?... (26 0236 03 13) for example ? which is 02:36 GMT on the 26th of March in the year of our lord 2013.

    Mainly asking for Date markers in multiple day missions.

    The format I've always been taught to use is DDTTTTZMMMYYYY so sort of like you had it, except I never have heard of using the numerical month, just to avoid confusion.

    For example, the current DTG here in Kansas is 260413SMAR2013.

      If I'm wrong low will correct me, seeing as no one has asked this before but you are correct. When writing official times you can use the military DTG(DATE,TIME,GROUP) format. In military context this is set as DDHHMMZ Mon YY

      Ex. I posted this at 261910K MAR 13

      Expanded this would read 26th 19:10 kilo time(+10 Zulu) march 2013.


      Remember this isn't something everyone will know off hand, so either throw a quick explanation in there or link an explanation in your post that will explain this. When posting, use Zulu time and link a time zone converter in there.:thumbup:

        Its mainly for map markers in game

        Ex. Town Clear - 261910Z MAR 13
        For extended PO:MSO missions that cover multiple days in the same mission.

        Ill try to remember the Month is letters not numerical :)

          Bolagnaise is on target, again.
          Use which ever means necessary. As long as it is commonly understood by all & avoids confusion.
          But using ZULU is a must. It really is not difficult to convert.
          By the way, thanks for your input, LordFuzzyWig.
