Italian Carabiniers

Unread postby Helios88 » Mon Sep 07, 2015 5:35 pm

The encyclopedia page about the Carabinieri has some issues. :D

1) General officers:
The one-star rank is shown as "Colonel Commandant Army Corps" while is the rank insignia for "Brigade General" (Italian: Generale di Brigata); the other two insignias are to be scaled down of a rank, being "Division General" (It: Generale di Divisione) with two stars and "Army Corps General" (It: Generale di Corpo d'Armata) with three star.
Finally, two other insignias are not depicted: the Commandant-General (It: Generale di Corpo d'Armata Comandante Generale, with four stars, one of which is red trimmed) and the Deputy Commandant-General (It: Generale di Corpo d'Armata Vice-Comandante Generarel, with three red trimmed stars).

2) Field/senior officers
The rank insignia of "Colonel Corps Commander" (It: Colonnello Comandante di Corpo) is Colonel insignia (i.e. silver tower with three silver stars) with the stars trimmed red. :D
There is not "Major Commandant", but there is (although it is very rare) the "Lieutenant Colonel Unit Commander" and it has the two stars of the Lieutenant Colonel trimmed red. :D

3) Company/Junior officers
I attach the picture, but the only error is the background colour for the 1st Lieutenant. :D

4) Warrant Officers/Marescialli
The only error is in the highest WO rank, which is no longer "Maresciallo Aiutante Carica Speciale", but "Luogotenente". The shoulder is black as the other ranks, the silver bars are on red background and the star is on the black and not on the red. :D
The issue with "Luogotenente" is that it translates as "Lieutenant", but it is not a commissioned officers rank.

5) Enlisted and Corporals
The highest enlisted rank, shown in encyclopedia as "Appuntato UPG" (red and silver chevrons) is "Appuntato Scelto"; "Appuntato" has a large red chevron and two small red chevrons, while "Carabiniere Scelto" has only a large chevron. :D

Here it is an useful guide, complete with NATO equivalents, although literal translations are quite wrong. smilies-01
