Military ranks of North Macedonia

The Military ranks of Macedonia are the ranks used by the Army of the Republic of North Macedonia. The ranks are divided into four main groups, depending on the position and function: Generals, Officers, NC officers and Soldiers. Being a Landlocked country, Macedonia does not have a navy.

The current system of ranks and insignia was introduced in 1991 thus replacing the former Yugoslav Army insignia, on which it is based.

Army of the Republic of North Macedonia

The Army of the Republic of North Macedonia (Macedonian: Армија на Република Северна Македонија [АРCМ]) is a defense force consisting of an army and air force; it is responsible for defending the sovereignty and territorial integrity of North Macedonia. Since 2005, it is a fully professional defense force compatible with NATO standards.

Lieutenant colonel general

Lieutenant colonel general or sub-colonel general (Serbo-Croat: генерал-потпуковник or general-potpukovnik) is a general officer rank in a number of Balkan armed forces. Its literal meaning is "sub-colonel general".

The rank of lieutenant colonel general represents a rationalisation of the situation in some armies of a lieutenant general outranking a major general, when a major outranks a lieutenant. In the Serbian Army, the rank of "sub-colonel" (potpukovnik / потпуковник) is used rather than "lieutenant colonel" (poručnik pukovnik / поручник пуковникin).

Outline of North Macedonia

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to North Macedonia:

North Macedonia is a landlocked sovereign country located on the Balkan Peninsula in Southern Europe. North Macedonia is bordered by Serbia and Kosovo to the north, Albania to the west, Greece to the south, and Bulgaria to the east.

It was admitted to the United Nations in 1993 under the provisional reference the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia commonly abbreviated to FYROM, pending resolution of a naming dispute with Greece. Many other international institutions and countries recognised the country under the same reference, although an overall majority of countries recognised it under its constitutional name.North Macedonia forms approximately 35.8% of the land and 40.9% of the population of the wider geographical region of Macedonia, as it was defined in the late 19th century. The capital is Skopje, with 506,926 inhabitants according to a 2002 census, and there are a number of smaller cities, notably Bitola, Kumanovo, Prilep, Tetovo, Ohrid, Veles, Štip, Kočani, Gostivar and Strumica. It has more than 50 natural and artificial lakes and sixteen mountains higher than 2,000 meters (6,550 ft).

The country is a member of the UN and the Council of Europe and a member of La Francophonie, the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Since December 2005 it is also a candidate for joining the European Union and has applied for NATO membership.
