Republic of China Army rank insignia

The rank system of the Republic of China Army (Chinese: 中華民國陸軍; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Mínguó Lùjūn [1]) was originally based on that of the Wehrmacht during the era of Sino-German cooperation in the 1930s. The Republic of China Army rank of one-star general does not use the French-style title of Brigadier General, but the German-style title of Major General.
