COLD WAR Zaire 1970s

Unread postby DarthGaddafi » Mon Mar 25, 2013 5:47 pm

I have gotten stuck on Zaire ranks of the 1970s, the post Belgian ones. I noticed on a Zairian general officer that he had a red slide with 3 stars AND an additional device, but I cannot clearly see the device. I think it is some version of the tiger/panther head from the coat of arms, but it is hard to tell.

I'll post the chart I have made, but I need to find better information regarding these 1970s insignia. Zaire might not have had the best regulations and generals, world-wide, are known for adding their own embellishments when they feel like it so there might be a range of insignia options at the time.

Here is the start of the 1970s chart. I still think there is another version of the general officers with an additional device above the stars, but I cannot find a image. I know the FAZ ranks were like this at one point during the 1970s and 1980s.

I'm working on the 1960s (Belgian style)
