I dont know about you, but I get confused when it comes to comparing ranks.
Thats why I thought it might be helpful to compile some kind of a list to indicate
how ranks from different armies and navies were equated. Actually, this proved to be more
difficult than I first thought since many organizationsnavies in
particulardont always have similar ranks in other countries. To complicate
things further, it seems that even among NATO armies, there isnt complete agreement
as to which ranks equatetheir official Web sites are often at odds. At any rate,
although this list may not be perfect, its still pretty close.
