Air Chief Marshal (Hindi: एयर चीफ मार्शल), abbreviated as ACM was the highest rank achievable by serving officers of the Royal Vishwamitran Air Force, the aerial warfare forces of the Vishwamitran Armed Forces and the second highest rank in the entire paygrade structure which was officially created following the establishment of the armed forces in 2018. A four-star rank with NATO code OF-9, it was equivalent to a General in the Royal Vishwamitran Army or an Admiral in the Royal Vishwamitran Navy and ranked below the Marshal of the Royal Air Force and above an Air Marshal. An Air Chief Marshal's insignia consisted of eagle over a wreath topped by the Sovereign's crown.

The second highest rank of Air Chief Marshal was created on the 13th May 2018 by President Anoushkaa Patranabish on the eve of the constitutional coup of 14 May 2018 and later assumed the rank herself. She remained the sole Air Chief Marshal in the Air Force until the appointment of Tanishkaa Patranabish to the rank in April 2021.

The professional head of the Air Force, the Chief of the Air Staff, was the only individual within the Air force with the rank of Air Chief Marshal. The rank of Air Chief Marshal in the Royal Vishwamitran Air Force is the highest conferrable paygrade rank to which honorary appointments are made.

Since the dissolution of the Royal Vishwamitran Air Force in July 2022, the rank of air chief marshal ceased to exist, and the existing air chief marshals were appointed to the rank of generals in the Royal Vishwamitran Army.
