Jane's Defense Weekly September 15 releases a detailed report on the overall development of China's national defense industry. It says the global defense market is coming to the era of "made in China" following the consumption market.

According to the report, China's national defense industry has gained prominent development in aerospace and shipbuilding. China develops a number of military aeronautic platforms, including J-10, FC-1/JF-17 Xiaolong, J-11B, Kongjing-2000 early warning aircraft and a series of UAVs, of which performance is second only to US and Russia's like products. It's estimated that the total number of J-10 fighters is likely to exceed 300, which depends on the development of China's fifth generation fighter J-XX.

The report says China's national defense industry is striving to promote its products in the global market and has gained tremendous achievements. Aviation Industry Cooperation of China announced in 2009 it broke the record of defense export in the same year and took new export markets as the key momentum for further development.

Analysis from the report points out the sound popularity of military products labeled "made in China" in the global arms market results from the fact that China cannot only provide developing countries with military equipment, but also offer technical support for the construction of infrastructure, or even provide credit support. For example, Aviation Industry Corporation of China, China North Industries Group Corporation and China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation all have their offices in Islamabad to support Pakistan's procurement of Chinese weaponry – JF-17 fighters, Al-Khalid main battle tanks and F-22P frigates. Meanwhile, China also helps Pakistan modernize its national defense.

The report thinks the biggest challenge that China's national industry faces is military technology which is needed for the development after 2020. Though China sticks to indigenous development of many advanced technologies, it's nearly impossible for China to surpass the west developed countries in the high-technology development, or it's very difficult for China to catch up.

It already has - even USA imports many items from China defence industries. Cheap labour is the driving force behind many West countries decisions.

When Cjinese workers get more high wages the pendulum will swing to another direction as it always does.

Stupid Americans still want to use M16 rifles though when the AK47 is so much better..............
Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.

When the DF-21D is out we should offer protection services to anyone feel threatened by the world's biggest Imperialist navy, and create a global network of anti-Imperialism.

To break the West's and Russia's monopoly on the world's arm's market, our goods will have to have been battlefield proven and that there are not even remotely any competition amongst them. And, to prove the worth of our goods, our engineers and scientists must strive to be first class in all areas of science and technology and not just in a few specialized fields. In other words: We must prove that we can lead the world in all facets of science and technology.
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?

Depending on which part of the world we are talking about, Ichi. But, if it was up to me, I would still not want for China to be involved, militarily, in other parts of the globe because that was precisely the thing that's brought about the economic problems of the former USSR which ultimately resulted in the disintegration of that once mighty and proud nation.

That said, and however unthinkable it may seem, economics potentially might also be reason which would result in the downfall of America -- if America is ever to be inflicted with the same demise as the Soviet Union did...

However, if we indeed are able to pull East Asia together and turn it into one same ball of wax, then definitely, all East Asia need to be treated as kin, which they are, and that means "an attack on any member of NATO = an attack on all members of NATO" .
