Mairitanian field-grade officer insignia

Hi All!
The Mauritania page is correct, exept field grade officer insignia. All Field-grade officers wear their stars under bar with loop. All ground forces personnel wear green rank slides exept medical personnel. Medical personnel wear crimson rank slides. Officer rank insignia are the same for the ground forces and air force and naval forces.
Cheers. Uri.

Mauritania now has generals

Unread postby ryanemilia » Wed Aug 06, 2008 5:39 pm

If you go to yahoo news, or some similar news service and read about the latest coup in Mauritania you will see they now have about 4 generals. Insignia looks similar to namibian ranks.

Expect an updated chart from me soon.

Nice job Ryan, but I’m not sure about 1-star general rank. Mauritanian rank designations are similar to those of the French military, but they use stars instead of stripes. For this reason i think first general rank is indicated by 2 stars like other former French african colonies. What do you think about ? Do you have any pics ?

I do not have any pictures of 1-star generals. From what i have read about the coup 5-6 officers were involved with two holding the rank of Amid (1-star level) and the other just described as "generals'. If this guy in my picture is the coup leader then I figured he must hold the highest grade.

General officer ranks are new to the country as far as I know. I suppose I'll have to write to their embassy.

Hi everybody,
on the subject of the senior ranks,, how about the Navy, any Admirals? If so, crossed swords and stars also?
Cheers

Two-star GdB is the highest rank in the country's armed forces. And they are going to great lengths to embellish the G.O. uniforms.
