Comparative navy enlisted ranks of Europe

Rank comparison chart of all navies of European states. Some European countries do not have naval forces, either because they are landlocked Austria, Belarus, the Czech Republic, Moldova, Luxembourg, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo, Slovakia, San Marino and the Vatican (enclaves with Italy), or naval duties provided by another state such as Monaco (provided by France), .

The Cyprus Navy is the naval branch of the Cypriot National Guard. NATO has a scheme for comparative ranks for member countries, non-NATO countries equivalence is determined against this system.
