My list is still incomplete. First column is early NATO designation, second column is type description and third column is later NATO name (if any).

Also I have found confusing data about Type 1 vs. Type 2, Type 15 vs. Type 21, and also Type 30 (which I also found as Tupolev Tu-14 UTI!).
Does there exist a definitive list somewhere for these early NATO designations?

Thanks a lot, Vahe. Somehow I had overlooked that page on Andreas's website.
