And it's No exaggeration.

Look at some of weapons for comparison.

1)US's LA class submarine SSN featuring VLS launched Tomahawk cruise missiles. It first commissioned in 1976 and Now, US is retiring some of the LA class subs.   The equivalent Chinese sub with those feature would be 095.  It hasn't show up yet.

2)US B1 Lancer supersonic bomber it first commissioned in 1985,  The equivalent Chinese model is H-6K,  and still a subsonic model.  it just starting to show up..


3)The F117 first stealth fighter Nighthawk, commissioned in 1976, no equivalent Chinese model yet.  still working on it.  As you know nighthawk already retired.

4)The F110 Jet Engine powering the current F-16, F-15. It first commissioned in 1980.  The equivalent Chinese model is WS10A,  still in the process of mass manufacturing.


so, as you can see, alot of stuffs China trying to put out as new stuffs now which equivalent to stuffs US put out in the late 70s or early 80s.

Safe to say , China lacks behind US military technology  30 yrs as of now in overall picture

Money is no object when there's a war.  War generates profit.  The loser of the war will pick up the bill.

Have you ever heard of the story of David verses Goliath? All it took was a simple slingshot. In other words, if Goliath have with him a huge baseball bat, a heavy 80 pounder sword that only Conan can muster; fangs the size of the tooth of a saber tooth; and teeth as sharp as a whole school of piranas; all it needed is a slingshots, deadly slingshots, and Goliath will tumble down like a log.
Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

Even Pakistan doesn't want their F-16's anymore and are eying some 250 plus units of JF-17's and expecting a line up of some 30 or so J-10 because their American supplied F-16's and their French Mirage-2000's are craps.

Even the Chinese J-7G's does a better job than the F -16 and the Mirage 2000 because the J-7G was refurbished to deal with Taiwan's F-16 and Taiwan's Mirage-2000, and with Taiwan's so bragged about IDF or F-CK-1 hence the J-7G was specifically fine tuned for the purpose.  

In the eyes of the USSR's latest series of MiG-21's, Su-15, and Su-24's, etc., the US implemented their teen series of fighters thinking they'll have an advantage. Mach numbers was all the rage at the time and everyone was juggling for first place in the respect. The word high tech wasn't even a household word yet (don't thin k it even existed then) and the PC as we know it today existed only as a fantasy in our as "HAL of 2001 a space odyssey. I mean remember that Guys?   

The USSR of course countered with the MiG-23/27/25 and later the Su-27, MiG-29. China made do with J-7 upgrades and later, the J-8. The only advantage America's teen series of fighters have over the rest the world then was its BVR AAM's which neither China nor Russia had at the time.   

The F-22 and the F-35 was hence implemented to deal with the speculated debut of the J-10 which words in the street suggested at the time raised grave fears in the DOD that their teen series of fighter won't be of a match to China's J-10.  That is in the DOD's very own words.  The F-18A Super Hornet was a stop gag to deal with the possible debut of the J-10 while the F-22 and F-35 was under development.

The J-10 broke that monopoly that America, and Russia, have over China in fighter aircraft technology. Likes those of the teen series of fighters, I'm of the speculation that stealth such as the F-22/35 and F-117 too will be defeated -- not by a stealth fighter in kind by China, but by China's efforts at rendering the technology obsolete or pointless with AAM's specifically designed to seek out stealth fighters and other like aircarfts. I think they've already perfected the technology which is why they are as confident as to come up with a rhetoric as the following:

Flash: http://jiangshuai.com/%E4%B8%8D%E4%BF%A1%E4%BD%A0%E6%9D%A5%E8%AF%95%E8%AF%95%EF%BC%9A%E7%BE%8E%E5%86%9B300%E6%9E%B6f22%E8%BF%9B%E4%B8%AD%E5%9B%BD%E6%9C%89%E6%9D%A5%E6%97%A0%E5%9B%9E

In all, NO!, China is not 30 years lacking here. In fact, it is now in the forefront of fighter and other technology and that is why the Americans are so wary about now days -- China's ability to counter America technology for technology that is...
