"F2" not very interesting in English

F2? Pretty boring name in English. But.... I remember playing Hogan's Heroes when I was a kid, and counting in the German we learned from the TV show. I remember Eins, Vigh, Drigh (phoenetically, of course). So, in German, if 2 sounds like Vigh, how do you say phoenetically say "F"? Maybe it's something cool like "Figh" so you get "Figh-Vigh"? That sounds more cool than Eff-too in English.

Can you German speakers out there please clarify?

F2 sounds boring in German too. It's pronounced as "Eff-Tsvigh" or "Eff-Tsvoh". I guess the name is an acronym (sp?) of the company formerly known as "Fun & Function", but I can be wrong here.

No, no connection to V2, ME 109 or any other weird WW II stuff.
