congrats and to prove your sergeantness and satisfy my curiousity please explain chinese military rank structure and how it compares to the ours
there is a world standard for military rank (the NATO standard). china's rank structure is pretty much identical to ours. they have 9 enlisted ranks and 10 officer. the officer hierarchy is identical to the US military. their enlisted structure is different in that an E-3 is considered a Non-Comissioned Officer and the the top 4 enlisted ranks are Senior NCOs. in our rank structure you aren't an NCO until E-5 and senior enlisted are E-7 and up (with the exception of the Navy who consider their E-4s NCOs).
fun fact about the chinese is that their military is called the PLA (People's Liberation Army) and all of their branches begin with PLA i.e. PLAN (PLA-Navy) and PLAAF (PLA-Air Force). my favorite is the air division of their navy PLANAF (The People's Liberation Army Navy Air Force).
that's got to be a confusing football game
