Senior non-commissioned specialist officers
"There was no direct Anglosphere equivalent; perhaps the closest examples of the time would be the British Royal Navy's and United States Navy's ranks of Warrant Officer." It occurs to me that the old Specialist 7 or 8 from the 70s might be a reasonable comparison -- although they were not technically NCOs they were treated with similar respect. I don't think US Navy Warrant Officers are a good comparison, since they are not NCOs. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:35, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
- The old WW2 Navy Warrants were close; they were not NCOs but they weren't commissioned officers either.Solicitr (talk) 14:18, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Title change: inaccurate.
The old page title was cumbersome but accurate. The new one is inaccurate; the article is about the Army (Heer) ranks and insignia and does not cover the rest of the Wehrmacht, the Air Force (Luftwaffe) and Navy (Kriegsmarine). The title also tends to perpetuate the common misperception that Wehrmacht = German Army, which is entirely wrong. Solicitr (talk) 14:21, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
