And you thought the MOD was top heavy

Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

And you thought the MOD was top heavy

In muted defense of our (American) numbers, some of our generals are brigadiers, while none of your brigadiers are generals. But yes, we are blessed with an abundance.

Some of our one star generals are Air Commodores, some are called Brigadiers (we already know he outranks a full colonel), and the ones with boats are called Commodores with no mention of the wet stuff at all.
