Brazil is pushing ahead its armored personnel carrier production program both to modernize its army and to create a new defense export market. Argentina is the first foreign customer to indicate interest in acquiring at least 14 of the six-wheel Guarani APC that Brazil is developing in a joint venture with Italy's Iveco S.p.A., which has headquarters in Turin.

Brazil has invested tens of billions of dollars in regenerating its shipyards and civilian and defense aviation industries. Commercial and defense aviation major Embraer is developing new tactical transport aircraft as part of that overall strategy and plans are afoot to build capacity for commercial and military helicopters.
