Of-7


An officer of two-star rank is a senior commander in many of the armed services holding a rank described by the NATO code of OF-7. The term is also used by some armed forces which are not NATO members. Typically, two-star officers hold the rank of rear admiral, counter admiral, major general, or in the case of those air forces with a separate rank structure, air vice-marshal.

Rather than stars, the Canadian Forces insignia use maple leaves. The maple leaves appear with St. Edward's crown and crossed sabre and baton. Before unification, air vice marshal was the two-star rank for the RCAF.

In the Russian and Soviet armies, the equivalent two-star rank is major general (Russian: генерал-майор'), although the insignia is a single star. This also applies to the Air Force, MVD, police, FSB and some others. In the navy, the equivalent rank is rear admiral.
