Each country has their own military structures, and they can vary wildly, depending on where you are. To help make sure that your character is realistic, we've put together a guide to some of the most likely countries to be associated with the Stargate Project. The guides we've provided are for army, navy and air force, and detail the ranks (commissioned and non-commissioned), and how long the minimum time spent at each rank must be. These guides, at present, are linked from and the various military organisations themselves as they are the most comprehensive guides available as to ranks and the time required between promotions.

If your chosen country is not listed, and you would like some help with research, please contact a staff member, who will be pleased to help.

  • "So, how long does it take to get promoted in the Army? Remember, it's dependent on the particular MOS (job) and how many vacancies (due to separations and retirements) there are in that job. On average, however, one can expect to be promoted with the following time-in-service (2001 statistics):

    Private (E-2) - 6 months
    Private First Class (E-3) - 1 year
    Specialist/Corporal (E-4) - 18 months
    Sergeant (E-5) - 4.2 years
    Staff Sergeant (E-6) - 8.5 years
    Sergeant First Class (E-7) - 13.6 years
    Master Sergeant/First Sergeant (E-8) - 17 years
    Sergeant Major (E-9) - 20.8 years"
