IMTU: abbrevations for ships and squadron composition

Part of my detailing IMTU:ISW setting. I wanted to paint a more detailed picture of current circumstance and the past. My idea for the game is nothing new, I want to focus from the Terran perspective. Characters can live up to 100years and have the generational epic, with the future historical feel found in the Foundation and done in Legend of Galactic Heroes

Ideally I want to narrate from the Present, and the generation of my son (who is 14 mo. old) and how he ages into the Intrastellar Era of humanity, towards the Interstellar Era.
