In the CoHH universe, all ships are identified with a type or allegiance designating prefix before their ship name. Militaries always use the name identifier, regardless of class, but civilian ships can have various prefixes depending on their type or origination species. In example, the galactic standard for a simple trade ship is MV for Merchant Vessel, but Humanity sometimes still uses SLV for Super-Luminal Vessel, which was the Amaril Corporations chosen designation for any ship capable of faster than light travel.

Prefixes Currently Known in the CoHH Universe are as follows:

ESN - Eletheen Space Navy
SLV - Super-Luminal Vessel (Human Only)
ESV - Experimental Space Vessel
MV - Merchant Vessel
PV - Privateer Vessel
RSV - Research and Survey Vessel
