The military rank of chui was equivalent to lieutenant. [1]

Command Edit

A chui was in charge of a unit and fell under the command of their superior officer, a taisa. A chui commanded from four to twenty gunso and their troops, or about 5,000 troops. Unit size varied depending on the army and time period; each gunso commanded between 25 and 400 troops, and the number of gunso a chui commanded could vary as well.

Chui were usually a promoted from the ranks of the gunso who showed a firm understanding of tactics and strategy in addition to being experienced leaders. Chuis were sometimes awarded a small castle along with their rank near where their unit was posted. [2]
