Various Military Ranking Systems
« on: September 19, 2013, 04:44:42 PM »

So. I thought it may be worth while for everybody so we can see each nations ranks for its respective forces.
I'll Start with the British Forces because I know then best.
And Hopfull at some point we can get each nations ranks up against a NATO code.
But you know we will see what time takes.

For Navy Petty Officer ranks, the PO is replaced by their Job Rating. A Yeoman, for example, would be rendered as YN. So, YN3, YN2, YN1, YNC, YNCS, YNCM. PO# is normally only used when you don't know the person's rate (job).

For Navy E-9, you can also have Command Master Chief (CMC) or Force Master Chief (FMC).

Fleet Admiral is not a rank actively in use by the USN at this time. It has only been issued a couple of times, and only during times of war. Fleet Admirals are simply Admirals in charge of a fleet. The same is true for General of the Army (GA)

Army E-9 can also be Command Sergeant Major (CSM).

Air Force E-9 can also be Command Chief Master Sergeant (CCM).

For the enlisted ranks where there are multiple ranks per pay grade, I have underlined the one which is more predominantly used.

A note about Coast Guard ranks - They are the exact same as USN ranks. The only different is that the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) rank becomes Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard (MCPCG) and there is no "Fleet Admiral" equivalent.


Also, I wanted to use borders to help differentiate a bit and make it clearer, but my normal coding for that didn't want to work...Hrm.

Well, I didn't.  The only thing I used wikipedia for was to make sure I offered the proper abbreviations for the ranks which I wasn't certain of.  But otherwise, it's knowledge that I use every single day, by virtue of the fact that I'm active duty USN.  If it happens to look the same, that's just because I'm OCD and like things like this properly organized.

Oh, Bowsy, I'm so very sorry! Looking back at my comment, I can see how it would have been taken the wrong way. It was nothing against you or anything, I swear it! Just a sleep addled brain not rereading my words carefully enough to make sure they couldn't be seen as a jab at someone. It's all in good spirits, I promise you that!

It was an accident, a misinterpretation.  Like I said, no harm, no foul.


Of course we can.
