Asp = not an abbreviation (it's an archaic word for several species of venomous North African snakes)
FDL = Fer De Lance (it's also a type of snake)
DBS = Diamondback Scout
DBX = Diamondback Explorer
T6, T7, T9 = Type 6, 7, 9 transporters

Few newbs realise that it's not an abbreviation and refer to it in capitals.

Its in the spreadsheet link just not in the main site list. I have to manually format the site list to work and it takes longer and longer as the list expands :lol: so I am only updating that after I have added a few new items. :oops:
