Insignia of the Russian Navy.

The Navy of the Russian Federation inherited the ranks of the Soviet Navy, although the insignia and uniform were slightly altered.

The Russian armed forces have two styles of ranks:

  • Troop ranks (army-style ranks) and
  • Deck ranks (navy-style ranks).

The Army, Air Force and Airborne Forces use troop ranks. The Navy dominantly uses deck ranks but also uses troop ranks for some specialties: naval aviation, naval infantry, medical, and legal.

Rank titles are sometimes appended due to assignment, branch or status:

  • The ranks of servicemen assigned to a "Guards" unit, formation or ship are preceded by the word “Guards”;
  • The ranks of servicemen in the legal, medical and veterinary branches are followed by “of Justice”, “of the Medical Service”, and “of the Veterinary Service”, respectively;
  • The ranks of servicemen in the reserve or in retirement are be followed by “of the Reserve” or “in Retirement”, respectively;
  • The rank descriptor "of Aviation" was officially abolished but is still commonly used.

The following table of navy ranks illustrates those of the Russian Federation. The English translation is given first, followed by the rank in Russian.
