Podpraporshchik (Russian: подпра́порщик, lit. 'under praporshchik' or 'junior praporshchik', Russian pronunciation: [pɐtˈprapərɕːɪk]) was a Russian non-commissioned officer (NCO) rank (Russian: у̀нтер-офице́р ранг, IPA: [ˌunʲtʲɪr ɐfʲɪˈtsɛr rank]), originally below the Sergeant and Feldwebel. From 1826 to 1884 it became the highest NCO rank of the infantry, cavalry, and Leib Guard. From 1884, podpraporshchik ranked below the newly introduced NCO-grade zauryad-praporshchik (Russian: зауря̀д-пра́порщик, lit. 'praposhchik deputy', Russian pronunciation: [zəʊˈrʲat ˈprapərɕːɪk]).
