Fleet Ranks

From ROI Wiki

Many of the ranks in Earthfleet are based around the ranking system used by the US Navy and share many similarities with them. However, due to the uniqueness of Earthfleet's mission, it's rank and command structure differ from that of the US Navy, and most other navy's on Earth. Below is a breakdown of all the ranks, both officer and enlisted, and their respective insignia. Officer ranks are always worn on both collars when in dress uniform, and on the right arm when in work uniform. Enlisted rank is always worn on the left arm, between the shoulder and elbow, in both dress and work uniforms. Enlisted dress rank is always the brightly colored rank insignia. Work and combat uniforms instead employ the olive drab subdued rank insignia as it blends in with the uniform.
