Army ranks and insignia of the Austro-Hungarian Army

Rank insignias as worn by the Austro-Hungarian Land Forces after the reorganisation in 1867 until 1918



The ranks displayed after the "/" are the Hungarian equivalents of the Austrian ranks, since they were used in this format in the Magyar Királyi Honvédség (Royal Hungarian Home Defence Forces).
