Slip-on ranks slide into the epaulet when unbuttoned and then is buttoned to hold the rank insignia place. Pinning on metal rank badges damages their uniform collars, epaulettes and lapels. Most air forces, armies and Navies worldwide employ slip-on ranks worn by other ranks and officers alike. These shown here are worn in Islamic nations.
