On the eve of the election for president of Brazil, the Army simulated a cyber war against a group of "proletarian ideals".
Organized by the Army's Cyber Defense Command, the Cyber Guard 4.0 military exercise created a fictional war scenario in which participants had to fight a political organization called "Ideal Proletário Pantaneiro", identified by the acronym IPP.
The activity, according to the Brasil de Fato portal, was the starting point for the Brazilian Army's activities to guarantee the fairness of the campaign and the October elections.
In the imaginary geopolitical context of the Brazilian Army, the regime with "proletarian" ideals demands from its opponents the "demarcation of reserves" that would originally belong to its territory.
According to the narrative, the lack of recognition of this "alleged historical right" caused the IPP to militarily occupy the disputed region.

The military onslaught of the "proletarians", according to the exercise, "led the Security Council of the UN [United Nations Organization] to end diplomatic negotiations and to approve a resolution that foresees a military intervention", commanded by a "multinational military force with the aim of defeating the paramilitary group IPP".
The scenario created by the Brazilian military is part of the fourth edition of Guardião Cibernético, held annually by the Army. The event, which brings together government agencies and companies such as Cisco, Claro and Kryptus, took place between the 16th and 19th.
The simulated war environment, with references to left-wing ideas as "enemies", was conceived by the Ministry of Defense for another exercise, Operation Meridiano, a joint simulation of the Army, Navy and Air Force that took place in Pará in October 2021. .
It is worth remembering that the Army's Cyber Defense Command was represented by General Heber Portella in a commission created by the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) to oversee the October elections.https://sputniknewsbrasil.com.br/20220822/exercito-brasileiro-simula-guerra-cibernetica-contra-grupo-de-ideal-proletario-24335666.html
