Does anyone know what the second letter in those 4-letter Online Rankings codes means?

I get that every entry on the game's online rankings has a 4-letter code (e.g. GLDF, VECS, etc) which describes the game set-up that the player used - but I can't work out what the second letter means.

I'm sure it's something really obvious that I'm just not thinking of, and I'll kick myself when I find out! :)

First letter:
G,V ("Gradius II" or "Vulcan Venture" version of the game played)

Second letter:
L,E (???)

Third letter:
A,B,C,D (which of the 4 weapon loadouts was chosen)

Fourth letter:
S,F ("Shield" or "Force Field" chosen)
