Chom Phon


Chom Phon

Chom Phon is a military rank of Thailand, considered the equivalent to a General of the Army. It is ceremonially held by members of the Thai Royal family but exists only on paper in the actual Thai military. The Royal Thai Navy equivalent is known as "Chom Phon Rau" and "Chom Phon Argard" for the Royal Thai Air Force.
