MIlitary Resistor Specifications

The listed military standards may have been canceled with no replacement.
Before a document is written ensure that the specification may be sited and has not be replaced by another specification.
The revision of the standard is not listed here, as the documents my be updated at any time.

Editor Note;
Commercial grade, military grade, and military Established Reliability grade resistors are physically and functionally identical with the exception of failure rate levels.
These failure rate levels can vary by orders of magnitude. The abbreviation ER stands for Established Reliability.
