In reply  to all your posts, don't underestimate China - they do have the funds to procure a significant number of fighters and fighter/bombers.  Most of them from Russia.  Not only are they gobbling up all the planes from Russia, but also the Russian surface combat ships.  They do have first-rate technology that they have acquired from Western European nations as well as a brief intermingling with the Israelis on which I believe is the J-10 project that was mentioned before.

Where else do you think they're getting the funds to build up their military - the World Trade Organization - yep, all the Western companies, particularly America, that have set up big companies in China and where the Chinese are making billions from Western companies.

I always have felt that Communist China is a military threat not just to the U.S., but to European nations.  Another issue is they are resolved in taking back Taiwan - even if it means using military force.   So the People's Liberation Army Air Force is nothing to sneeze at - they are armed with Flankers, Super Flankers, Fulcrums, J-10s and not to mention - half the world's population they can throw at any army.

When that day comes, we're in a lot of trouble.

I don't underestimate them at all...also because of their Super Flankers and Flankers too.

To answer robotcop, yes the United States definitely has the funds to continue training our pilots, be it Air Force, Navy or Marines.  And to answer Gripen, it doesn't matter they haven't been in any air war, what - you think they're not training their pilots and they're just buying up most of Russia's planes for display?

To answer you both - you don't think they are training their armed services - then you're both more gullible than I thought.   And if their training doesn't win in an air war against the United States or any advanced Western nation, then their numbers will - just look at the Korean War - the United Nations armies ran out of bullets before China ran out of troops.
