Uniform of Swedish Armed Forces 2

The rank is indispensable to the armed forces. The People’s Liberation Army(China) has abolished rank in the past. However, they had a terrible experience by a fight against Vietnam. They revived at rank again.

Military ranks of the Swedish Armed Forces is superior English sleeve notes.

I am jet pilot mainly in Olds AFB. However, there is not the flight suit of the Swedish air force which is suitable in SL. Therefore I learn on the basis of rank of the army.  Military ranks of (primarily) Great Britain have been used as a basis for harmonization with NATO(the NATO codes for grades of military personnel).


OR-1 /Menig(Private:Pte)

OR-2/Menig 1.kl(Private First Class:PFC)

OR-3/Vicekorpral(Lance Corporal:LCpl)



Specialist Officers (NCO)

OR-6/Förste sergeant(Sergeant First Class:SgtFC)

OR-7/Fanjunkare (Colour Sergeant:CSgt)

OR-8/Förvaltare(Sergeant Major:WO2)

OR-9/Regementsförvaltare(Regimental Sergeant Major:WO1)


OF-1/Fänrik(Second Lieutenant:2Lt)




OF-4/Överstelöjtnant (Lieutenant Colonel:LtCol)

OF-5/Överste (Colonel:Col)

OF-6/Brigadgeneral (Brigadier General:BGen)

OF-7/Generalmajor (Major General:MajGen)

OF-8/Generallöjtnant (Lieutenant General:LtGen)

OF-9/General (General:Gen)

The military personnel ranks are indicated by insignia. I referred to Tjänstetecken for the badge of rank of the Swedish military.

How about badges of rank to the field and work uniform of green?

Insignia woven into the bronze color of gorget patches m/58 worn on the left kragsnibb (from carrier sense) for:

  • Field shirt m/59, t-shirt, warm jacket 90 and some special uniforms

Badges of rank woven into the bronze color of green shoulder flap cap m/87 GR BR worn on:

  • field uniform 90L, TR BE, TR, GR and green sweater m/87
  • naval uniform m/93 of personnel in the Air Force

Watch the upper youtube video clip. The badge of Anders Lindström‘s the left collar expresses that he is Lieutenant General. Then a different badge is sewed on the right collar of soldiers. What is it?

I will write about it on the next time.
