Terminology

The name "battalion" is a direct translation of Japanese "大隊". Unlike in the European languages, the same terms are used for military ranks and organizations across all branches of service in Japanese. Thus, a "少佐" (Shōsa, lit. "junior field-grade officer") can be any kind of OF-3 officer, such as a navy lieutenant commander or an army major. Similarly, a "大隊" can be an army battalion or any equivalents in other branches of service.

Since "mage" has no real life equivalent, different translators have chosen different terms. The Crunchyroll anime translation used army terms while the fan translations of the Light Novel and the manga used air force terms.
