    OGR the backend for Vector data in QGIS supports ENC-S57, but in won't show the specific symbology, just the data. DGN is sppported but not the newest version (no personal experience). I don't know about the military stuff, but i don't think so. Geotiff is supported fully.

All the 'GDAL formats' (raster formats) are here http://www.gdal.org/formats_list.html.
(3) DTEDO0, DTEDO1 and DTEDO2 (4) GeoTIFF (5) DTED are the supported formats.

    The exact details differ on the options that GDAL was compiled with though, many distros do not include everything. Feb 8, 2016 at 9:40

The GDAL section of the Options from the Settings menu will tell you which raster file formats GDAL in your QGIS can load.

I can't find a corresponding list for OGR (vector) drivers, but the popup on the "Load Vector Layer" probably has all the file-based ones:
