It appears that the Swiss Frontier Guard has new rank insignia. Does anyone have any details on the exact system?

Well, at least they have new blue uniforms. The old green uniforms are replaced by blue uniforms looking like the other Schengen-states.

The rank insignia look the same though.

This is an officer, his rank insignia is not covered in the Encyclopedia, but should be the same as the Army/Luke

Judging from the Swiss system of ranks and insignia I would assume the ranks go all the way up to Colonel.

1 thin bar - Lt
2 thin bars - 1st Lt
3 thin bars - Capt
1 thick bar - Major
2 thick bars - Lt. Colonel
3 thick bars - Colonel
