Admiral is a military rank used by various organisations and civilisations. It is one of the highest flag officer ranks available and is senior to a captain. As such admirals usually have far greater responsibilities and roles.
In the ground-based military equivalent of this rank would usually be a General.
There are several grades of this rank, including:
- Fleet Admiral (most senior);
- Vice Admiral;
- Rear Admiral; and
- Rear Admiral Lower Half (least senior: equivalent to Commodore).
