Hungarian Defense Forces - Rank

The rank is a title expressing the rank of members of the armed forces and law enforcement bodies, or a mark on the uniform place of the uniform. The military rankings in the 15-16th century arose with the emergence of permanent armies in European countries. Their official Hungarian names were first recorded in 1849, and then for the army in 1868. According to this, the following were included in the list of rankings: the rank of the crew was the public soldier, the chieftain, the corporal (that is, the chaplain), the leader, the sergeant, the sergeant and the flag. Officers, lieutenants and captains, rank officers are Major, Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel, Major General General, Lieutenant General, Lieutenant General, and Field Marshal.

The smallest military community in the eighteenth century was the so-called bridle with a total of three soldiers. Three brats (ie nine soldiers) made the tenth, six to ten tenths of the century, that is, the companion. The battalion and cavalry were made up of two or more centuries. By combining the regiments, the brigade (or brigade) was born, many of whom had a pillar or camp. The name of the bridegroom was far ahead of the leader, and the soldier at the top of the tithing was called a corporal.

In the 19th century, the Hungarian army commanders were called General. In the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy (1867-1918), similar names were beginning to emerge: The Honorist was a rank without a rank. Among the honorable, we find the chieftain, the decimaster and the head of the jury. Officers include Sergeant and Sergeant Master, and then Major Sergeant Major after 1915. The Warsaw Officers, and then the Hadaprodes were the Cadets, after 1908 the flagship was established. At that time the lieutenant, the lieutenant and the captain were at the officers, the latter only in cavalry units. The Major, Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel were chief officers, and among the generals, they defined the Major General, Lieutenant General, General Infantry, Cavalry General, Camp Hunter, Chief of Staff and Marshall.

The rankings of the Hungarian People's Army (1951-1990) have already shown a different picture: among the honest, there is the chieftain (who was wearing a white plastic star), the tenth (two white stars), and the conductor (his badge is located in three triangles of white stars). The bad-looking badges on the brown base were fastened to her shoulder belt. Officers also had the right number of stars to show the order: the sergeant was wearing a silver crossbone on a brown background, the Sergeant Major and the Sergeant Major were wearing a shoulder ribbon with a silver cord.

While the banners had a narrow silver band on their brown shoulders with gold stars and golden guitars, the tribal wreath had two golden stars embellished his badge. The officers (Lieutenant Lieutenant, Lieutenant, Captain, Captain) chose the right number of gold stars on a brown ground - except for the Lieutenant with the silver star in the longitudinal golden lane. The lieutenant's signal is a big one, the centurion has three golden stars, the major being a big silver star, and the colonel's shoulders had three big silver stars. The generals (Major General, Lieutenant General, Commander-in-Chief, Army General) were then marked by a large silver star in a full golden field - of course, the number of stars increased accordingly. There was a distinctive badge on the general cap.

In 1990, the Ministry of Defense decided that, following the change of regime, political and social changes should be made to the level of the army. The Hungarian People's Army became a Hungarian Defense Forces, so all the visual image elements and symbols that had been assembled as a civilian army had quite a definite ideological content. These had to be adjusted to the changes. There are so-called. basic symbols - the flags of the flag, the Hungarian Armed Forces, the names of the guards, the names of the military organizations, the team memorials, and even the military music culture and the horn, can be included.

A decision was made that the mark of the rank was not on the shoulder, but on the collar of the jacket. Instead of the five-star stars used in the period between 1949 and 1990, the rank was marked by six-pointed stars, which was a return to the Hungarian military achievements of the period before World War II.

In 1993, the National Assembly defined the following groups of groups and rankings: non-stewards include the Honorary (sailor and border guard), the Honorable, the Corporal, the Corporal, the Sergeant, the Deputy Sergeant (Sergeant only employed in the Hungarian Defense Forces and Sergeant Major Sergeant. The banners include the flag, the trumpet, and the baton, and the officers, the lieutenant, the lieutenant and the captain. Among the chief officers there is the Major, the Colonel, the Colonel, and among the generals the Brigadier General, the Major General, the Lieutenant General and the Chief of Staff.

Today, there are five types of rank marks: the shoulder pad, the shoulder seam mark (right), the Parolith, the cap signal, and the arm rank mark. At the NATO joining of Hungary (March 12, 1999), some minor or major changes were made: the basic color was green, each embroidered embroidery border and embroidered six-pointed star on the emblem.
