Plagiarized from Wikipedia: Admiral is one of the highest ranks in some navies. In the Commonwealth nations and the United States, a “full” admiral is equivalent to a “full” general in the army, and is above vice admiral and below admiral of the fleet, or fleet admiral. In NATO, admirals have a rank code of OF-9 as a four-star rank.
