The military ranks of the Xliponian Armed Forces, shown in the above picture, translate as follows:

ARMY
General - Colonel - Lieutenant-Colonel - Major - Captain - Lieutenant
1st Sergeant - 2nd Sergeant - Corporal - Soldier

NAVY
Vice-Admiral - Commodore - Lieutenant-Commodore - Commandant - Captain - Lieutenant
1st Sergeant - 2nd Sergeant - Corporal - Sailor

AIR FORCE
Brigadier - Colonel - Lieutenant-Colonel - Major - Captain - Lieutenant
1st Sergeant - 2nd Sergeant - Corporal - Airman

The Army wears khaki, the Navy (of course) navy blue, and the Air Force grey. The insignia from Army colonel to lieutenant use quinquefoils; the Air Force equivalents use the "X" sign found on military aircraft (as below). The brigadier wears griffin's wings.

The Navy rank of Vice-Admiral may seem strange in the absence of an Admiral. The latter exists only in times of war, expressly designated by the King himself.
