Podpraporshchik (Sub-Praporshchik or Junior-praporshchik) was a Russian non-commissioned rank, originally below the Sergeant and Feldwebel. From 1826 to 1884 it became the highest non-commissioned rank of the infantry, cavalry, and Leib Guard. From 1884, podpraporshchik ranked below the newly introduced NCO-grade Zauryad-praporshchik (Deputy Ensign).
