For China,  building a total of 1,000 land-based nuclear DF-31A  ICBM missiles is the cheapest option for only 6 billion dollars.

It is more expensive to build sea-based nuclear submarines,   because it would cost another 10 billion dollars to build  24 nuclear 094 series submarines carrying only a total of about 384 sea-launched JL-2 nuclear missiles.

Then,  to complete the Chinese nuclear triad,  it would cost another 4 billion dollars to build a total of 200 long range air force bombers carrying air-launched cruise missiles with nuclear warheads.  ( the US only has about 100 nuclear capable long range bombers,  and China should aim to have 2 times the size of the US nuclear arsenal )

Therefore,  for a combined total of only 20 billion dollars,  China could build a bigger nuclear arsenal than the combined total of the US and Russia put together.

Of course,  those 20 billion dollars are only the initial procurement costs of the Chinese nuclear arsenal,  those costs do not include troops level,  personnel training,  maintenance,  and other recurring expenses on a day to day basis.

The Chinese leaders are weak and corrupt.

The Chinese leaders are kowtowing to America and the Chinese leaders are refusing to beef up Chinese nuclear defense.

The Chinese leaders ha ...


20?

I would have thought that China has at least 50 ICBMs (one for each state in the U.S.).

China has successfully tested anti-satellite weapons, which is means the U.S. military would need to fight blindfolded in case of war with China.

All right,   maybe the Chinese leaders have built 20 older DF-5 ICBMs and possibly another 30 newer DF-31 ICBMs missiles,  but that is plainly inadequate.

China should build 1,000 newer DF-31A ICBM missiles,   because the DF-31A ICBM missiles are technologically more advanced than the older American Minuteman III ICBM missiles.

The American Minuteman III ICBM missiles were designed and built in the 1960 with the technology of the 1960 years,  whereas the Chinese DF-31A ICBM missile was designed and built in the 1990 with the more advanced technology of the 1990 years.
