Vice Admiral is a senior naval rank of a 3 star flag officer, which is equivalent to Lieutenant General in the other uniformed services.

In many navies,[1] Vice Admiral is a three star rank with a NATO Code of OF-8, although in some navies like the French Navy it is an OF-7 rank, the OF-8 code corresponding to the four star rank of Squadron Vice-Admiral.
