Jenderal besar, translated literally as "great general", is the highest rank of the Army of Indonesia. It is the equivalent of a general of the army, and is used to translate that rank into Indonesian.[citation needed]

Currently the rank has been held only by three persons:

A jenderal besar could technically be appointed if ever Indonesia became engaged in a major war or suffered from a massive invasion. A jenderal besar would then, most likely, become supreme commander of all Indonesian military forces.

The insignia for jenderal besar is five golden stars arranged in a pentagon formation. Thus, the insignia is very similar to the United States Army rank of general of the army.
