2000 German style United States Forces in Germany license plates sent by Dennis Cerantola of Switzerland. The look alike to German plates was introduced to lessen the visibility of U.S. Forces vehicles and use prefixes not used by official German plates. The two lined plates started with the AF but were discontinued because it could be read as "Allied Forces". They were replaced by the HK prefix. Single line German style plates started with the AD prefix and are still in use.


This style of U.S. Forces in Germany plate has been used from 1991 to 2001.


Currently used U.S.Forces detachment in the Netherlands at the Schinnen Base.

2000 U. S. Air Force plate sighted near Nellis Air Force Base outside of Las Vegas, Nevada on May 7,2001, by Andrea 'Enthal of Agoura Hills, California.
Notice the numbers.
They are the peel and stick self adhesive type, and you can notice where previous numbers were on this plate.
Evidently, the Air Force is into recycling.
