Ranks and insignia of NATO navies enlisted

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This table shows the ranks and insignia of NCOs and Seaman in the navies of member countries of NATO. NATO maintains a "standard rank scale" in an attempt to match every member country's military rank to corresponding ranks used by the other members. The rank categories were established in the document STANAG 2116, formally titled NATO Codes for Grades of Military Personnel.

Notes[edit]

  • The Norwegian armed forces ranks displayed on this page reflects the new ranks and insignia system for enlisted personnel approved on 12 June 2015. The new system is in the process of being introduced and will be fully implemented from 2016.[2][3]
  1. ^ Greece has only one level of Warrant Officer. According to the current issue (2010) of STANAG 2116, the Greek Warrant Officers are included in OR-9, however they are afforded the privileges of an officer. See STANAG 2116 note 16.
