Military ranks of North Macedonia

Summary

The Military ranks of North 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, Non-commissioned 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.
