  Brigadier - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
In the New Republic, the rank of Brigadier was used within the military-style rank hierarchy of New Republic Intelligence, even though NRI is not known to have contained units designated as Brigades, or indeed to have had any higher hierarchy of general ranks.
Alternatively, it may be that A'baht had transferred from the line military to New Republic Intelligence, and that his rank of Brigadier General was a grade in the NRI command structure—although not necessarily the equivalent of an army Brigadier.
In the UK and other countries where the shorter "Brigadier" rank is used, officers of this rank are not regarded as true general officers, although their substantive rank is equivalent.
