Female army officers in Italian?

When referring to/addressing a female officer, do you use the masculine noun and adjectives throughout, or would you make any distinction?

I once read a blog in which a female sub-lieutenant was described as a sottenenssa (cen't remember exact spelling, but it was something like that). Would that just have been the blogger's own invention, or is that a known slang term? If so, just how common/slangy is it?

Thanks for any help.
