Stabskapitänleutnant, short: StKptLt / in lists: SKL, (English: Staffcaptain lieutenant) is the highest Fachdienstoffizier rank (en: specialist officer, comparable to US warrant officer) in the German Navy[1] / armed forces of Germany (Bundeswehr).

The rank is rated OF-2a[2] in NATO, and equivalent to Stabshauptmann in Heer, and Luftwaffe. It is grade A13 in the pay rules of the Federal Ministry of Defence and is senior to the regular OF-2 rank of Kapitänleutnant (en: Lt).

Address[edit]

The official manner, in line to ZDv 10/8, of formal addressing of military people with the rank Stabskapitänleutnant (OF-2a) is “Herr/Frau Stabskapitänleutnant“. However, as to German traditions and in line to seamen´s language the “Stabskapitänleutnant“ will be addressed „Herr/Frau Kaleu“.

Rank insignia[edit]

Its rank insignia, worn on the sleeves and shoulders, are one five-pointed star above two stripes with two half stripes between them (without the star when rank loops are worn).

Particularity[edit]

Military people of the “line officer career” (de: Truppendienstoffizier/ Truppendienstlaufbahn) skip over this rank, by regular promotion from Kapitänleutnant (OF-2) to Korvettenkapitän (OF-3), however, the pay grad A13 (Stabskapitänleutnant and Korvettenkapitän) is identical.
