A Military Unit Number is the conventional index naming standard for military units in Soviet Union and post-Soviet states' Armed Forces and Internal Troops.

For Ground Forces the Military Unit Number is assigned for a military unit (corps, division, brigade, etc); for Navy the Military Unit Number is assigned for a single ship.

The number is also used for the unit's Military mail.
