Current insignia


In 1980-1989 Cuba used ranks and insignia based on the Soviet system (to the extent of copying the embroidery pattern on officers' shoulderboards).

Nowadays, rank insignia are green colored and the rank insignia used during the early 1970s for junior officers were reinstated. Moreover, other ranks insignia are now on the sleeve and are similar to those used during the Cuban Revolution by the Rebel Army. Only general rank insignia are still based on the Soviet system.

Historical ranks


All ranks follow Soviet and French style influences. In turn, the Cuban system (rather than the Soviet one) influenced the Chinese rank insignia introduced in 1980s.
