Nigerian Presidential 5-star

Unread postby DarthGaddafi » Tue Apr 02, 2013 6:43 pm

The Nigerian President Goodluck Johnathan seems to enjoy military pageantry. He has been noticed wearing Nigerian Army field marshal rank, Nigerian Navy fleet admiral rank and Nigerian Airforce marshal of the airforce rank.

I'll take a stab at charts tonight, but until then enjoy these photos. The encyclopedia is slightly incorrect.

I'll update the chart as I make more graphics. I really want to include the berets - I especially like the marshal of the airforce beret with all the extra gold wreaths.

I still need to make the airforce and navy.

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF). I'm still working on the fantastic cap badges they use, especially that used by President Jonathan.

Navy coming along, but I wish I had a better pic of the President's shoulder board.

The Nigerian Navy. Working on hats, based off Medic_in_Uniform's stuff.

Even more photos of President Jonathan wearing 5-star insignia. Now with 5-star collar insignia following a number of countries (Pakistan) to adopt, American style, stars for general officers.

He seems to have settled for (2) major generals patches and (1) Brigadier patch sewn line.

Cream-coloured naval uniforms with red General Officer army gorget patches...?

Just looks odd.

And his tie is loose too (!).

Yeah *recalls seeing Air Force uniforms with the same color gorgets, shudders* it does look ... wrong.
It is possible to pull off gorget patches, provided they're appropriately colored. Swap the red for black/dark blue for the navy, leaving the gold oak leaves, and use light/sky blue for the Air Force, replacing the gold leaves with silver.

Changes to Nigerian Rank

Unread postby DarthGaddafi » Fri Jan 31, 2014 7:48 pm

It appears that beyond the recent use of six- pointed collar stars by the Army the Air force and Navy have also made modifications to their rank.

The Nigerian Air Force has begun adding five-pointed stars to their shoulder boards similar to Ghana...see pic.

And the Nigerian Navy is now using 4 stars similar to the British Royal Navy.

The recent updates for the Nigerian Navy are semi-incorrect. The presidential fleet admiral rank does not use silver devices. The rank also uses the national coat of arms in gold as well.
