Question Ecuadorian–Peruvian War( War of '41)

As some of you know, currently I'm focused on my USN Dodge WC6 project but it's slowly getting to the end. In the meantime I look for inspiration for my further projects. I don't know what will be next, but recently I've read some sources about the very unknown conflict, at least for me. Ecuadorian-Peruvian War, sometimes called War of '41(Guerra del 41). My favorite period in history, 1940s, so I dived into this. Unfortunately, I'm unable to find what I'm looking for. And here I need your help. Can anyone tell me something, provide some links about the vehicles, uniforms, weapons, aircraft of this conflict? I'm mostly interested in land vehicles in this case. Trucks, jeeps, armored cars, tanks, anything.
Thanks in advance.

Useful links, you can learn something from them. Unfortunately, they don't have many details about the vehicles, just the basic informations...
I've found few photos that interest me. Czech LTP or LTL tank is probably the most reported vehicle from this conflict, so it doesn't need to be identified. I have problems with identifying the others. Anyone knows those trucks(I'd say they're Chevrolets)? Artillery tractor and motorcycles are also a mystery to me.

I found a lot of historical information, very little about vehicles. According to find out they used the Czech tank THN 38, the F6 recovery tractor that is the one in your image, the truck is a 1941 Chevrolet CHD, there was also Ford COE.
Aircraft Curtiss Wright CW-19R, IMAN RO-37, Northrop 8A3P, Caproni Ca135 and Ca310.Seguire looking.

hi PacificWind:
There is a book on Latin American air wars, out of print by now.
It has a little bit of info on the conflict.
Maybe a friend would have it.
Best regards.

Thank you, Sergio!

That's something good! I knew you'll be able to find something. Pretty much is explained. Probably some kind of vehicle from Ecuadorian-Peruvian War will be my next scratch project. Those Ford COEs are really interesting...
Anyway, can we identify motorcycles? Would be a nice idea to build a motorcycle from this conflict and also something new to me.

And Sergio, I'll post that link you sent me yesterday:
Armas Peruanas de la guerra Peru-Ecuador, 1941. - Page 12


It's a gold mine for this subject.

Little update: on the page 13 from this link, motorcycles are identified as Harley Davidson Sidecar U series.

Yes, color schemes would be useful.
There's a lot of time for research. At first I have to complete my Dodge, then probably I'll build some planes and then, next scratch project. I think that Harley will be the next. Interesting subject and new challenges like wire wheels, sidecar, engine.
