Soviet military rank boards were more diverse and complex compared to those of most Western armies. This is reflected in the large number of variations on rank boards and emblems available. Currently, the section on ranks has almost 100 different illustrations available with notes accompanying each illustration. This selection covers officers, officer cadets (kursant), servicemen as well as the Suvorov cadets. There are also articles titled Overview of Ranking Structure from US Army FM 100-2-3 and Guide to Rank Boards for parade dress, everyday and field uniforms. All information comes from the official Rules and Regulations for the Wearing of Military Uniforms issued by the Soviet Ministry of Defence in 1988.
