Podpraporshchik (Russian: подпра́порщик, litera: under praporshchik or junior praporshchik) was a Russian non-commissioned officer (NCO) rank (ru: unter-ofizer rank), originally below the Sergeant and Feldwebel. From 1826 to 1884 it became the highest NCO rank of the infantry, cavalry, and Leib Guard. From 1884, podpraporshchik ranked below the newly introduced NCO-grade zauryad-praporshchik (praposhchik deputy).
