Re: LAT/LONG - The most preferred unit used by USAF aviation?

What would the target position format be as an example of targeting a building on the 6th floor. Would that be MGRS? Or is it a very independent format system? In other words, it would not be either LAT/LONG or MGRS. As for fighter jets, DD.MM is used instead as opposed to DMS when entering waypoints?

Re: LAT/LONG - The most preferred unit used by USAF aviation?

As for USAF aircraft like drones, and fighter aircraft that go on air strikes, they would mostly use the MGRS coordinates format?

Please post as an example on the format you stated.

Are you also referring to the FMS?
Does the FMS use the same format you mentioned without the SS?

I’m trying to track my USPS package and it says left departing facility. Does USPS have its own aircraft or do they just ship items along with regular commercial airlines?

My package will come from US to EU.
