Military ranks of Albania

Military ranks of Albania

Albanian military ranks form the system of hierarchal ranks in Albania's armed forces.


The first ranks in the Albanian Armed Forces were formed in 1926 during the reign of King Zog I. During the time of Italian and German occupations of Albania their respective ranks were worn on Albanian militia uniforms. After the Second World War, when the communist regime took power, military ranks were radically changed in looks and in naming. Mainly the image of the ranks came from the Soviet Union and the Communist Bloc. With the fall of the communist regime and the rise of democracy the outlook of the military ranks changed; they took a more modern and respectful look.
