CV is the hull type designation for an aircraft carrier. This is not to be confused with the aircraft carriers of today, which are CVN. The 'N' stands for nuclear powered. CVs were conventionally powered with boilers.
The letter P in the designation of aircraft during the World War II period (e.g. P-36 Hawk) represented Pursuit.
It's a Hull Classification symbol for an antisubmarine aircraft carrier, which type has since been retired. Aircraft carriers were originally considered cruisers, hence the "C", and the "V" comes from the French verb "voler" (literally, "to fly").
U.S. Navy Aircraft Carriers carry the primary hull designator "CV", for Carrier Vessel, with "CVN", for "Carrier Vessel, Nuclear". In WWII, there was a CVE (Carrier Vessel, Escort) designator to denote resupply carriers for main CV's. It could be dependent on which navy you had in mind, but CV is used by several naval forces to denote an aircraft carrier.

It symbolizes the rising sun. During WWII, the Japanese painted the flage right in the middle of the flight deck of their aircraft carriers. It's location made the perfect target for American dive bombers.
It means it's the numbering from the Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies, by Halton Arp.

It stands for Display Electronics Units -
Helicopters and some STOL aircraft can stand still in the air. If an actual winged aircraft does this it will 'stall' because air pressure is not moving over the wings.
The E stands for Europe as this is where this numbering system originated.
Boeing is an aircraft company formed by William Boeing
AAA stands for Anti-Aircraft Artillery.

CSAS is an acronym for Command Stability Augumentation System - The "Fly by wire" system on Tornado Aircraft.
As you stand in front of the vehicle, hood open, facing the engine, the cylinder numbering is as follows: Back 4 - 8 3 - 7 2 - 6 1 - 5 Front

it stands for the letter A
AAR from AAR Corp. Stands for Allen Aircraft Radio.
The new British Carriers are shorter range(unless refuled at sea) as not nuclear powered, carry less aircraft so definitely second rate on those statistics. But..They are being designed to support the F35B from the start, and have a lower radar profile plus are cheaper to run. Few countries could stand up to an attack by either carrier class anyway. The USA is building a new class, the Gerald R. Ford class which although VERY costly, should be superior to both the nimitz class and the British Carriers. So in these credit crunch times which is better? the cheaper to run one or the higher capability but more expensive model?
It doesn't stand for anything, it is just the number assigned since the U.S. reset the numbering system for aircraft (which had been in use since before the Korean war) in 1962 by Defense Secretary Robert McNamara. Numbering for all military aircraft restarted at -1 after that (however the lowest number used for a fighter was the F-4, but the next bomber was the B-1). Not every aircraft assigned a number went into production and use (e,g, the prototype Airforce F-17 program was terminated when the F-16 was approved and the fighter was redesigned to make the Navy/Marines F-18). Also some numbers were skipped without ever having an airplane assigned that number (e.g. F-1, F-2, F-3, F-19) and the F-117 was inexplicably assigned an arbitrary out of sequence number that appears to be from the old numbering system.
