BATCO
Grid-based manual cipher system - this page is a stub

BATCO is a paper-based hand-held manual cipher system introduced to the British Army in the early 1980s, as a replacement for the SLIDEX system that had been in used since WWII. The system consists of a set of vocabulary cards and cipher sheets for superencipherment of numeric code words. BATCO is short for Battle Code and is still being used today (2016) as backup.
