Lieutenant Commander

Lieutenant commander (also hyphenated lieutenant-commander) is a commissioned officer rank in many navies. The rank is superior to a lieutenant and subordinate to a commander. The corresponding rank in most armies (armed services) and air forces is major, and in the Royal Air Force and other Commonwealth air forces is squadron leader. The NATO rank code is OF-3.

A lieutenant commander is a senior department officer on a large ship or shore installation. He or she may also be commanding officer or executive officer (second-in-command) of a smaller ship or installation.
