History[edit]

The first ranks in the Albanian Armed Forces were formed in 1926 during the reign of King Zog I. During the time of Italian and German occupations of Albania their respective ranks were worn on Albanian militia uniforms. After the Second World War, when the communist regime took power, military ranks were radically changed in looks and in naming. Mainly the image of the ranks came from the Soviet Union and the Communist Bloc. In May 1966 military ranks were abolished altogether following Chinese example and based on doctrines of guerilla warfare. With the fall of the communist regime the military ranks were re-established in 1991 following a Western model.
