Another Earth-1 military article, as the timeline update is stubbornly not ready yet:

Austrian Navy (Österreichische Bundesmarine)

Ranks

Insigina are based on those of the old Austro-Hungarian Navy. Being a republic, the crown found on AHN flag ranks has been replaced by the Coat of Arms of Austria, abbreviated CoAA, below. To get a better idea of what the ranks look like, here are the officer insignia of the Austro-Hungarian Navy, and the Unteroffiziere (NCOs) and below of the modern Austrian Armed Forces. For redundancy, here they are on the International Encyclopedia of Uniforms and Insignia: Austro-Hungarian Navy rank insignia, 1907 - 1918, and the Austrian Armed Forces, since 2002.

Because Austria is landlocked, it was decided that the addition of the term 'space' was not needed, as they have no other navy.

OF-10 Großadmiral (CoAA, wreathed, over three gold rings, top looped, over wide gold braid) (Wartime Only)

OF-9 Admiral (CoAA, over three gold rings, top looped, over wide gold braid)
OF-8 Vizeadmiral (CoAA, over two gold rings, top looped, over wide gold braid)
OF-7 Konteradmiral (CoAA, over one gold ring, looped, over wide gold braid)
OF-6 Flottillenadmiral (CoAA over wide gold braid)

OF-5 Linienschifftskapitän (three gold rings, top looped, over wide gold braid)
OF-4 Fregattenkapitän (two gold rings, top looped, over wide gold braid)
OF-3 Korvettenkapitän (one gold ring, looped, over wide gold braid)

OF-2 Linienschifftsleutenant (three gold rings, top looped)
OF-1 Fregattenleutenant (two gold rings, top looped)
OF-1 Raumfähnrich/Korvettenleutenant (one gold ring, looped)

OF(D) Raumkadett (one gold bar, looped)
OF(D) Raumaspirant (one gold bar)

OR-9 Oberstabsbootsmann (three silver stars, over two bars, bordered)
OR-8 Stabsbootsmann (two silver stars, over two bars, bordered)
OR-7 Unterbootsmann (one silver star, over two bars, bordered)
OR-6 Bootsmannsmaat (two silver stars, over one bar, bordered)

OR-5 Oberstabsmarsgast (one silver star, over one bar, bordered)
OR-4 Stabsmarsgast (three silver stars)
OR-3 Marsgast (two silver stars)
OR-2 Matrose 1.Klasse (one silver star)
OR-1 Matrose 2.Klasse (no insignia)

The uniforms are modernized variants of historical Austro-Hungarian Navy uniforms, save for a flightsuit based on that of the Austrian Air Force. Spacesuits are adapted from the flightsuit until 2015, when the Austrian Ministry of National Defence and Sport begins to purchase the Franco-German design.


Thoughts?
