Russian and their strategic ENERGY BLOC is critical power bloc in our world!

The reason for an indigeneous Chinese Arms industry is for SECURITY and increase the ENGINEERING, SCIENTIFIC TALENT in China! As military budget can be very big for an empire as large as China, producing indigeneous weapons is an important industry - but it MUST BE ON THE BACK of a commercial industrial base!


The Russians has only a small population with a large land mass, losing a little bit of arm business to China would not harm it, in FACT it benefits the RUSSIANs as they can export more CRUDE OIL, GAS, URANIUM, TIMBER, OREs to China!

and China could afford it!


cheerios!

So Russia DIDN'T sell China SU27 (J11), Kilo SSKs or Sovremny DDGs, nor will they sell S400 SAMs? Not sophisticated? Then why the hell is China buying them?

But most countries buying Russian weapons target SU-30 and MIG 29.    If CHina can produce alot of engines for its FC-1 and J-10,
huge share of Russian Pie will get eaten away.

It's almost there, 5 more yrs. CHina should achieve that.
