The Afghan Armed Forces is composed of personnel of various ranks which span three pay-grade brackets, those being on-Commissioned Officers, Commissioned Officers and the General Staff. The highest official rank within the AAF is Marshal, which has not been used since Mohammed Fahim,[1] who left the position in 2002. The current General is Vacant, who was appointed the position of Deputy Chief of Staff of the Afghan National Army,[2] whose superior is the Defense Minister, Tariq Shah Bahrami. Afghanistan is a landlocked country, and does therefore not possess a navy.
