The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.


Convert a craft's type into a link to a category page and append the category to the calling page.


{{craft type
| type
| pre =
Type of aircraft, spacecraft, vehicle, seacraft or air traffic control. Although this can be any text, special parameter values, independent of capitalisation, will be associated with a category. This will result in the creation of an internal wiki link to the category as well as appending the category to the article. See the Craft types section below for a table of values.
Text to prefix prior to the link text. This is useful for creating lists.
