Admiral of the Fleet (Adm of the Fleet) is the highest flag officer and commissioned officer rank in the Imperial Navy. The rank can be held by members of the Imperial Family and current and retired Chiefs of the Imperial Naval Staff and Chiefs of the Imperial Defence Staff.

Admiral (Adm) is a flag officer rank and is a member of the Admiralty. An admiral does not usually hold any command posts within the Imperial Navy and the only admirals to do so are the three division commanders: the Admiral of the Red, the Admiral of the White and the Admiral of the Blue.

Vice Admiral (VAdm) is a flag officer rank and is usually the commander of a fleet.

Rear Admiral (RAdm) is a flag officer rank and is usually the commander of a larger squadron, such as a cruiser squadron, or a more specialised or elite squadron, such as the King's Squadron.

Captain (Capt) is a senior officer rank and can be achieved after serving a minimum of three years at the rank of commander. Captains generally command ships of cruiser size or larger. Senior captains usually command a frigate or destroyer squadron.

Commander (Cdr) is a senior officer rank and can be achieved after serving a minimum of three years at the rank of lieutenant commander. A commander may command a frigate or destroyer or may serve as executive officer or senior staff member on a larger vessel.

Lieutenant Commander (Lt Cdr) is a mid-ranking officer rank and can be achieved after serving a minimum of three years at the rank of lieutenant.

Lieutenant (Lt) is a junior officer rank and can be achieved after serving a minimum of three years at the rank of ensign.

Ensign (Ens) is the most junior commissioned officer rank in the Imperial Navy. An ensign may go directly to a warship after being commissioned to serve as a division officer or he or she may serve up to two years of specialty training before reporting to a combat unit (e.g. flight school, weapons systems school, navigator school).
