Brazil’s efforts to build an indigenous military-industrial capacity are indicative of some of the challenges and risks of implementing a military industrialization strategy. This case is interesting for two reasons. First, it questions the centrality of threat perception as a driver of the creation of indigenous arms production capabilities. Second, it shows the many challenges that such a project can encounter, regardless of the motivations that drive them. Indeed, current Brazilian efforts to increase and modernize the country’s weapons production capabilities are its second attempt at be coming a major military industrial actor regionally and internationally.
