Cool. That Norwegian rank pdf is really well made. Looks like some kind of official printout thing to people who need to recognize their counterparts.
Another interesting thing I noticed is that the Staff Sergeant is the highest NCO rank. Does Norway have the similar approach to Enlisted -> Officer transition that Sweden has? That is, you can become an officer just by serving a few years.

Also notice that a lot of the lower enlisted ranks are merely marked by sticks? I think the French also use that sort of system as well as the Swedish. It's much easier to stamp out than anything fancy like a chevron. What a great way to know that you're so worthless that they didn't even bother to make a real design for your rank

The pdf is an official printout..

Norway doesn't have NCO's, I've explained a bit about the Norwegian rank system here:

To become an officer you'll need at least one year at a sergeant school, and one year as a sergeant.

... whatever happened to the ol days of field marshals that commanded millions of men and thousands of machines...

some military has their insiginia worn on top of the shouldier, some on the side of the shoulder, and some near the collar, which ones a better arrangement?

UK/Commonwealth still has Field Marshalls I believe. I'm sure a troop from there can tell you for certain.

As for insignia placement, well on the collar is perhaps less likely to be seen by a sniper. Better yet is to pull it off entirely in combat.
