im not sure about a ranking system

in the old kindom it was walkin and copper and stone weapons mainly axes and verylittle to no armour this carried on into the middle kingdom.

It was the invasion by the hyksos that brought in new technology like chariots and bronze weapons and armour. the hyksos also brought horses (no war horses in ancient egypt before that...)

you may want to loook up books on thutmoses 3 and ramesses 2 campains in the near east .... because before that there is not much millitary narrative ....

Are you talking about the modern or ancient military because armor could mean tanks and weapons can mean firearms but I doubt thats what you meant lol

I dont know much about the Egyptian military exept from what Ive read in books but I can gaurantee by common sense there was some kind of Ranking system, and I know there where generals so there must have been captains but I cant see them calling themselves sergents, Colonols, Oficers or Majors because thoes are relativley modern European and western terms and almost every army in the world uses this class sytsem now.
