Missing ranks in table[edit]

The illustrative table is missing the ranks of:
Vice Admiral -- Lieutenant General
Rear Admiral -- Brigadier/Major General

Do some nations use the rank even in PEACE time?

Generic title[edit]

While I see that this is a dab page, IMO all the 5-star admiral pages should link to a generic article like "5-star admiral" or "Grand admiral" (caps deliberate). Then the specific country articles can be titled "Admiral of the Fleet (UK)" or "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union" etc. That said, practice should follow established usage in historical and military texts, not just anglophone.

If I might add..

In the Malaysian and Indonesian navies, the rank laksamana is a '4 star rank'. In theory, it should be available in the Royal Brunei Navy, although none has been conferred..

The equivalent '5 star rank' in the Royal Malaysian Navy is 'Laksamana Armada' which means 'Admiral of the Fleet', and has only been conferred to members of the royal families..

The 'five star rank' in the Indonesian Navy, is 'Laksamana Besar' which means 'Grand Admiral'.. (talk) 19:53, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
