This is a table of the ranks and insignia of the Mexican Army. Spanish language ranks are in italics, with English translation. Rank insignia of the Mexican Air Force and Mexican Army are identical, as are the ranks, with the exception of two general ranks. Nowadays the ranks are now supported with the Fuerza Aerea (Air Force) ranks for the Air Force itself only, with special titles in the Army for all ranks per their respective specialty.
