As far as I know, that's about it. Members of group/team/squad Alpha for evample will be given a callsigns in the following manner:
Alpha 1
Alpha 2
Alpha 3

With alpha being Phonetic alphabet for A, you would see it written as:
A1
A2
A3


This just carries over to other letters as well, look up phonetic alphabet if you want to see what it'd sound like in radio or vocal chatter
