In XCOM: Long War, which was the primary continuum my homefic was based off (though I'm technically from the canon Whoniverse), Field Commander is the highest rank for a field officer. You're one step down from the Commander (in my case, Jack O'Neill from Stargate: SG1... yeah, DIC took one look at it and noped on outta there) and are basically their eyes and ears on the ground. They give you that rank in case you run into any obnoxious local-yokels on the ground who think they can boss you around when the plasma starts flying, basically.

Hope that helped!
