How much would it cost for China to build a Chinese nuclear arsenal 2 times bigger than the American nuclear arsenal?

The truth is simple.

It would cost less than 1% of the total Chinese foreign exchange reserves of 3,000 billion dollars, or less than 30 billion dollars.

America has around 700 nuclear ballistic missiles, about 400 land based ICBM missiles and 300 sea-based SLBM missiles, and about 100 nuclear B-52 bombers.

In China, it only costs 6 million dollars to build a DF-31A nuclear ICBM missile.

China could simply build 800 DF-31A ICBM missiles for only 4.8 billion dollars, far less than 1% of the Chinese forex reserves of 3,000 billion dollars.

In the light of China's huge industrial capabilities, China could easily expand the existing Chinese missile manufacturing plants to produce over 200 ICBM missiles every year.

If China chooses to build more sea-based SLBM missiles, it would be more costly because China would need to build expensive nuclear submarines to carry the SLBM missiles.

But even then, building 12 094-type nuclear submarines to carry 192 SLBM missiles would only cost a total of 9 billion dollars, still far less than 1% of the Chinese reserves of 3,000 billion dollars.

Finally, building 600 nuclear-tipped cruise missiles for the Chinese H-6 long range bombers would only cost less than 1 billion dollars.

China could very easily build a much bigger nuclear arsenal than America in order to protect the world from attacks by American imperialists.

Especially,  the China needs to stop America from trying to attack China.

America wants to start a war against peaceloving China.

China should build 3 times more nukes arsenal than America.

The Chinese leaders are too weak,  the leaders are kowtowing to the US.

The Chinese leaders will not expand the Chinese nukes for fear of upsetting the US.
