Combrig (or Kombrig, Russian: комбриг, "kombrig", abbreviated from командир бригады "Commander of the brigade") was a military rank used in the Red Army for commanders of brigades between 1935 and 1940 (with some individuals still holding the rank in 1941). Kombrigs were senior to polkovniks (colonels) and junior to comdivs (commander of the division). When general ranks were reintroduced in July 1940 most kombrigs were transferred to the junior rank of polkovnik, while some received the rank of major general.
