What do the H and D types stand for? Have we seen anything like that before?
not sure about H, but from a side quest, the D types are Defense types and are posted in bunkers in case of an enemy attack.

The other Anon is right about D meaning Defense. However, D-types do go to the surface as there is a type D and a type H in 2B's squad at the very beginning of the game. 1D was actually the squad leader until 2B took over.

As for what H means, I don't know. Healer? Helper? Hitter? Heavy (weapons)?
A = Attacker, B = Battler, D = Defender, E = Executor, G = Gunner, H = Healer (Yoko Taro just confirmed this for me on Twitter!!!), O = Operator, S = Scanner. These are the only known YoRHa units so far.

Good to know, thanks anon.
Whoops, just learned there is a C-type (Canceler). Not sure what their function is, it's just briefly mentioned in the stage play.

If I had to take a guess, I'd say cancelers are some kind of counter intelligence or counter hacking. Someone that focuses on stopping machines from pulling tricks.
Type-D is Defender. Not sure about Type-H.
H is healer, I believe Taro confirmed this in a tweet.
What do the numbers in brackets mean?
