Here is some fixes for army of Serbia and Yugoslavia, of the ranks how should look like and position with correct names.

Ranks of generals where:
1. Brigadier General (Brigadni Djeneral - 1 star)
2. Division General (Divizioni Djeneral - 2 star)
3. Army General (Armijski Djeneral - 3 star)
4. Field Marshal (Vojvoda - honorary special rank)

This is for new table of ranks for Kingdom of Yugoslavia only:
5. Generalissimo (Vrhvoni Komandant - rank held by king only with special coat of arms and royal monogram in rank epaulette) These rank where similar to the rank of Montenegro's King Nikola I, since he was grandfather of King Alexander I.
