Brigadier {{#invoke:IPAc-en|main}} is a military rank, the seniority of which depends on the country.

In some countries, it is a senior rank above colonel, equivalent to a brigadier general, typically commanding a brigade of several thousand men.

In other countries, it is a non-commissioned rank (e.g. Spain, Italy, France, the Netherlands).
