Jenderal Besar


Jenderal Besar

"Jenderal Besar", translated literally as "Great General", is the highest rank of the Army of Indonesia. It is the equivalent of a General of the Army, and is used to translate that rank into Indonesian. Fact|date=February 2007

Currently the rank has been held only by three persons:

* Sudirman, also styled "Panglima Besar" ("Great Commander");
* Abdul Haris Nasution;
* Suharto.

A "Jenderal Besar" could technically be appointed if ever Indonesia became engaged in a major war or suffered from a massive invasion. A "Jenderal Besar" would then, most likely, become supreme commander of all Indonesian military forces.

The insignia for "Jenderal Besar" is five golden stars arranged in a pentagon formation. Thus, the insignia is very similar to the United States Army rank of General of the Army.
