Mod: Soldier Ranks That Make Sense 1.1
No more officers in fireteams. All the ranks are ones that suit soldiers going straight into combat, and not sitting behind desks, devising cleaver strategies or plotting support routes.

- What changed? No more officers in fireteams. All the ranks are ones that suit soldiers going straight into combat, and not sitting behind desks, devising cleaver strategies or plotting support routes. It's still stupid having a fireteam comprised of four master sergeants but a lot better then them being all majors...
Rookie -> Private (Pvt.)
Squaddie -> Private First Class (PFC)
Corporal -> Lance Corporal (LCpl.)
Sergeant -> Corporal (Cpl.)
Lieutenant -> Sergeant (Sgt.)
Captain -> Staff Sergeant (SSgt.)
Major -> Gunnery Sergeant (GySgt.)
Colonel -> Sergeant Major (SgtMaj.) or Lieutenant (Lt.) depending on the file you download.
The ranks are based off of USMC as I thought it would suit a unit like X-COM the best.
I'm not planning on changing the Psi ranks, at least not until I played long enough to acquire them and see if something's wrong with them.
If you have any ideas for changes or additions, feel free to share them.
Just put the file into your XCOM_install_folderXComGameLocalizationINT
Remember to back up the original file, just to be on the safe side.

Thanks to StrikeQ for information on Sergeant Major being more of an administrative rank in the comments. I changed the files according to his suggestions.
