The article is still not complete[edit]

There is a section concerning Military Regions, but there is no section to the Army Divisions, which are the proper combat units of the Brazilian Army. Someone has to expand the article and add this information, because Military Regions are solely responsible for logistical duties. Without Army Divisions, they would be pointless, for there would be nothing to offer the logistical support to. Furthermore, the picture of the Southern Military Command (Comando Militar do Sul) is not really from the Southern Military Command, but from the Salvador Military School (Colégio Militar de Salvador. Since both share the same acronym in portuguese (both Comando Militar do Sul and COlégio Militar de Salvador are "CMS"), the editor probabbly exchanged the coat of arms. Someone should fix that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sampaio5325 (talkcontribs) 08:43, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Someone has undone my editing[edit]

There is no need to repeat all the time that Brazilian Army Regiments are Battalion Sized. Also, the SubUnits (Subunidades in portuguese) of Brazilian Cavalry Regiments are called Squadron, not troops. Furthermore, all brigades but Infantry Frontier Brigades and Jungle Infantry Brigades have at least one Artillery group. Someone has simply erased my editing in that section. Besides that, the Light Infantry Brigades are Airbone Brigades, nor Airmobiles. For instance, after serving for at least 5 years in a light infantry brigade or in the parachute infantry brigade, you receive the "Airbone Medal" (Medalha do Mérito Aeroterrestre), so they share the same name and the same doctrine, although there are differences in their modus operandi. Please, stop erasing my editting! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sampaio5325 (talkcontribs) 07:58, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Why did my edit get partially reverted ?[edit]

It was referenced.(albeit in brazilian portuguese which could of caused some confusion,which could easily get solved up to a certain point with use of a automatic translator.).I will let this stay here for some time (actually,for more than 10 days,because im going to travel.).And if no justificative is presented i will undo what was undone.i will still obviously leave the "fixes" made on the writing and etc ,though.This is in order to try and avoid edit-wars. This is about the Number already in service of the ec725 super cougar in the brazilian ARMY,by the way.and the refference in question which was used was this one.Which is the site of the Brazilian Air Force ,but it is about the search and rescue of a downed brazilian Air Force aircraft ,which was aided by the Brazilian army.

Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:36, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Last paragraph of the Article[edit]

Since the History's books used in Brazil as well as quotes from new generation of army's officers refer to the events of 31 march of 1964 as a coup d'état I don't known were it could be a partiality in my edit, it seems the contrary... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:00, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for wanting to discuss this! I undid the edit because of this line: "The noxious effects from this regime on Brazilian Society are still ringing today." In Wikipedia we have a very strict guideline about a neutral point of view. WP:NPOV Calling a regime noxious, no matter how true or untrue, is not a neutral statement. You're more than welcome to add in any sourced material - just keep an eye out for those kinds of statements. Thanks! --mboverload@ 00:08, 7 July 2008 (UTC)


I removed the phrase: "Generally, those from the upper class and upper middle class find ways to defer, and as a result the ranks are made up primarily of lower-class and lower-middle-class recruits". Forced conscription is actually extremly rare. Several cities don't even have the possibility of conscription and everyone imidietly goes to the reserve. The phrase implies that lower class boys end up conscripted due to lack of enough influence to avoid it, but the truth is that, even among the lower classess, conscription is rare.

This is the first Wikipedia article that I would call "horrible". It was obviously written by someone whose first language is not English. The second paragraph (which is one sentence) is so terribly written that I can't even tell what it's trying to say -- otherwise I would edit it. But the article is full of incorrect words, missing articles or prepositions, etc, making it very hard to read. Can somebody who knows the subject matter, and who also knows correct English, just go through and clean it up? — Preceding unsigned comment added by RichMaru (talkcontribs) 17:23, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
