The Defence Ministry has issued new insignia for senior appointments, from commander-in-chief of the army all the way down to individual unit commanders, akin the Russian navy's surface ship and sub commander's badge.  Air force squadron commanders, division commanders, chiefs of military hospitals, regimental, brigade...  Worn over the right breast pocket.  I've seen them in both metal and cloth.

I've seen some of them, there's probably a ton of different ones.  Here's a sample below.  As I find more info, I'll fill you in.  These will most definitely become highly collectible!

Here's one for a chief of a military hospital, clinic or sanatorium.

It appears these were instituted by Order of the Minister of National Defence No 490 of 9 August 2016.  From what I read in a Russian forum, this puppy is approximately 100 pages thick!
