Linienschiffsleutnant (Hun: Fregatthadnagy / en: translation Ship-of-the-line lieutenant) was an officer rank in the Austro-Hungarian Navy. It was equivalent to Hauptmann of the Austro-Hungarian Army, as well to Kapitänleutnant of the Imperial German Navy. Pertaining to the modern day's NATO rank code it could be comparable to OF-2.
