Kombat (Russian: комбат, "kombat"), abbreviated from Командир батальона ("Commander of a battalion") was a military rank in the Red Army from 1918 to 1935. At that time it was roughly equivalent to the rank of Captain.[1]

It is also an informal Russian language abbreviation for the military commander's position for a officer in command of a battalion or an artillery battery.
