  2. Badge identifications

    Thanks for the info manuel. Is very similar to the soviet one and it seems logical looking the naval Officer. The only strange thing is that Ramiro Valdes also wears it and i didn't know he had spent years in the MGR and subs; this seems strange

  4. After the the dissolution of the Warsaw-Pact Cuba's FAR ranks returned to the bar system but stars remained for First Officers and superiors. Today the type of grades for the classes are the same as in the 30s and 40s. Nowadays the ranks system is an hybrid of all the time because the bars are adopted again. Designation is similar to the original but incorporates elements of the Soviet era (as the background of the general grades). Here: The Classes are: Cabo, Sargento de Tercera, de Segunda y de Primera
