In late 2015 I drafted a report about Peru's weapons industry for the Argentine think tank Centro Argentino de Estudios Internacionales ( ). In the report, I discussed that, in the end, the most important fact for any Peruvian soldier fighting narco-insurgents is to have the most reliable weapon possible in his hands.

Moreover, if is professional and efficient, technicians will have valuable new training so that they can build Peruvian-made weapons in the near future. The problem is that these are a lot of 'œifs.'
