State and Soldier in Latin America: Peaceworks: Publications: U.S. Institute of Peace (5609 words)
Brazil's armed forces have greater clout than the Argentine military in lobbying for their preferred roles, but unlike their Chilean counterparts, they are not sufficiently influential to be able to pick and choose what missions they are willing to perform.
Force levels for the three branches, rather than taking the upward turn the services had hoped for, decreased from 319,000 in 1988 to 296,000 in 1993.
Many Brazilian officers continue to think of their institution as a force for national integration and the sole representative of the state in remote regions of a vast and underdeveloped country.
The Armed Forces of WWII (South America). (2907 words)
In 1944 the air force was elevated to a status of a separate branch of the armed forces.
In the 1930's the air force was only in initial stages of development; in 1935 the very first flight was created but it was only during WWII that shipments of aircraft from the U.S. allowed for a more significant development of the air force, eventually transforming it into a separate branch of the armed forces.
The air force did not constituted a separate branch of the armed forces, but instead it formed an integral part of the army; it consisted of three obsoletely equipped flights with a total of 45 planes (in 1937).
