Vice-Senior General Maung Aye (Burmese: မောင်အေး, [màuɴ ʔé]; born 25 December 1937) is the former Vice Chairman of the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), which was until March 2011, the ruling military junta of Burma. Maung Aye was the second highest-ranking member of the SPDC.

Maung Aye and Senior General Than Shwe, along with six other top military officers, were reported to have resigned their military posts on 27 August 2010. He reportedly transferred the deputy commander-in-chief post to Lt-Gen Ko Ko, head of Chief of Bureau of Special Operation-3, but remains the country's deputy head of state.[4] The rumours were later to be proven false.[5]


Maung Aye graduated from the Defence Services Academy in Pyin U Lwin with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1959. In 1968, he became commander of the Northeast Region. In 1988, he became commander of the Eastern Region. Two years later he was promoted to major-general. In 1992 he was made Army Chief. In 1993 he was named Lieutenant General and the Deputy Commander in Chief of Defense Services. In 1994 he was appointed Deputy Chairman of SLORC, and now holds the same position in the SPDC.


He is married to Mya Mya San and has one daughter, Nandar Aye.[6]
