Air Chief Marshal (Australia)

:"See Air Chief Marshal for other countries which use this rank"

Air Chief Marshal is the highest active rank of the Royal Australian Air Force and was created as a direct equivalent of the British Royal Air Force rank of Air Chief Marshal. It is also considered a 4 star rank. The only time the rank is held is when the Chief of the Defence Force is an Air Force officer.

Air Chief Marshal is a higher rank than Air Marshal and is a lower rank than Marshal of the Royal Australian Air Force. It is a direct equivalent of Admiral in the Royal Australian Navy and General in the Australian Army.

The insignia is three light blue bands (each on a slightly wider black band) over a light blue band on a black broad band.
