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.
