  1. ^ In the German army and air force the rank equivalent to lieutenant-general was formally linked to the branch of the army (Heer) or air force (Luftwaffe) in which the officer served: General der Kavallerie (cavalry), General der Artillerie (artillery), General der Infanterie (infantry), General der Panzertruppen (armoured troops), General der Gebirgstruppen (mountain troops), General der Pioniere (engineers), General der Fallschirmtruppen (parachute troops), General der Flieger (aviators), General der Flakartillerie (anti-aircraft) and General der Nachrichtentruppen (communications troops).
