The Military ranks of Mozambique are the military insignia used by the Mozambique Defence Armed Forces. As a former Portuguese colony, Mozambique shares a similar rank system to that of Portugal.

Under the rule of Samora Moises Machel, a Soviet-style system of rank insignia for top ranks was briefly introduced in Mozambique. It was reverted to the Portuguese style shortly after his death.
