Fregattenleutnant

Fregattenleutnant (Hun: Fregatthadnagy / en: translation Fregate lieutenant) was an officer rank in the Austro-Hungarian Navy. It was equivalent to Oberleutnant of the Austro-Hungarian Army, as well to Oberleutnant zur See of the Imperial German Navy. Pertaining to the modern day's NATO rank code it could be comparable to OF-1a (senior).

The right to be assigned to Fregattenleutnant was limited to professional officers. It was superior to Korvettenleutnant (a reserve rank) and inferior to Linienschiffsleutnant. Until 1908 the rank was called Linienschiffsfähnrich (ship-of-the-line ensign).

Professional officers skipped that rank Fregattenleutnant and were regular promote from Seefähnrich to Fregattenleutnant (also OF-1a), the next higher rank (comparable to Oberleutnant zur See).

The rank name was selected in line to the division of war ships to specific ship categories early of the 19th century, e.g. corvette (de: Korvette), frigate (de: Fregatte), and to ship of the line (de: Linienschiff). In the Austro-Hungarian Navy the appropriate rank designations were derived as follows.

Korvettenkapitän OF-3 (equivalent: to Heer Major)

Fregattenkapitän OF-4 (equivalent: to Heer Oberstleutnant)

Linienschiffskapitän OF5; (equivalent: to deutsche Marine Kapitän zur See / Heer Oberst)According to that systematic the rank designations to subaltern – or junior officers were derived as follows:

Korvettenleutnant OF-1b (equivalent to deutsche Marine Leutnant zur See Heer: Leutnant)

Fregattenleutnant OF-1a (equivalent to deutsche Marine Oberleutnant zur See / Heer: Oberleutnant)

Linienschiffsleutnant OF-2 (equivalent to deutsche Marine Kapitänleutnant / Heer:Hauptmann)This sequence of ranks can be found in the today´s Croatian naval forces.

Korvettenleutnant

Korvettenleutnant (Hun: Tengerészzászlós / en: translation Corvette lieutenant) was an officer rank in the Austro-Hungarian Navy. It was equivalent to Leutnant of the Austro-Hungarian Army, as well to Leutnant zur See of the Imperial German Navy. Pertaining to the modern day's NATO rank code it could be comparable to OF-1b.

The right to be promoted to Korvettenleutnant was limited to so-called naval reserve officers only. However, professional officers skipped that rank and were regular promote from Seefähnrich to Fregattenleutnant (also OF-1a), the next higher rank (comparable to Oberleutnant zur See). A Korvettenleutnant did wear the same rank insignia as a Seefähnrich.

The rank name was selected in line to the division of war ships to specific ship categories early of the 19th century, e.g. corvette (de: Korvette), frigate (de: Fregatte), and to ship of the line (de: Linienschiff).

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).

Linienschiffsleutnant

Linienschiffsleutnant (Hun: Sorhajóhadnagy / en: translation Ship-of-the-line lieutenant) was an officer rank in the Austro-Hungarian Navy. It was equivalent to Hauptmann of the Austro-Hungarian Army, as well to Kapitänleutnant of the Imperial German Navy. Pertaining to the modern day's NATO rank code it could be comparable to OF-2.

The rank designation was used continuously in the Austria-Hungarian follow on countries Yugoslavia, Croatia, and Slovenia, as well as in the modern day's Austrian merchant navy.

The rank name was selected in line to the division of war ships to specific ship categories early of the 19th century, e.g. corvette (de: Korvette), frigate (de: Fregatte), and to ship of the line (de: Linienschiff). In the Austro-Hungarian Navy the appropriate rank designations were derived as follows.

Korvettenkapitän OF-3 (equivalent: to Heer Major)

Fregattenkapitän OF-4 (equivalent: to Heer Oberstleutnant)

Linienschiffskapitän OF5; (equivalent: to deutsche Marine Kapitän zur See / Heer Oberst)According to that systematic the rank designations to subaltern – or junior officers were derived as follows:

Korvettenleutnant OF-1b (equivalent to deutsche Marine Leutnant zur See Heer: Leutnant)

Fregattenleutnant OF-1a (equivalent to deutsche Marine Oberleutnant zur See / Heer: Oberleutnant)

Linienschiffsleutnant OF-2 (equivalent to deutsche Marine Kapitänleutnant / Heer:Hauptmann)This sequence of ranks can be found in the today's naval forces of Croatia, and Slovenia.
