The chest pin badge “Captain” is an oxidized metal plate with a profile image of a surface vessel (a cruiser), in the center of which there is a five-pointed star of red enamel.
The pin badge’s dimensions: width – 3 1/32 inch, height – 53/64 inch.
On the reverse side there is a pin with a nut to fasten the badge to the military uniform.
The pin badge is worn on the right side of the chest.
The right to wear the chest pin is reserved by the commanders of both surface ships and submarines even after their subsequent appointment as a chief of the staff, a deputy commander or a commander of a squadron, etc.
In case of a transfer which is not related to ship command, the officer still owes the pin badge, but without the right to wear it on the military uniform.
