Ranks and rating insignia in the Republic of China Air Force (中華民國空軍 - Zhōnghuá Mínguó Kōngjūn[1]) are originally based on the ranks used by the German Air Force during the era of Sino-German cooperation in the 1930s. Since the 1950s, the rank structure is getting closer to the one used by the United States Air Force.
