Divisional admiral

Divisional admiral is a commissioned officer rank in several navies.

It is equivalent to the rank of rear admiral in the Royal Navy and the rank of rear admiral (upper half) in the United States Navy.


In the Naval Component of the Belgian Armed Forces, the rank of division admiral (Dutch: divisieadmiraal, French: amiral de division) ranks directly above a flotilla admiral and immediately below a vice-admiral. Its equivalent rank in the Belgian Land Component, Air Component and Medical Component is major-general.


In the Marina Militare, the Italian Navy, the rank of ammiraglio di divisione ranks directly above a counter admiral and immediately below a squadron admiral. Its equivalents in the Italian Army and the Italian Air Force are generale di divisione (divisional general) and generale di divisione aerea (air divisional general).
