this week, the first Chinese weapons European defense exhibition debut. Previously it was predicted that the Western media may take the opportunity to clamor for the “China military threat theory.” However, when dozens of countries showed their latest equipment, the Chinese “threat” seems very unreal, but concerned about the outside world since China’s military technology to other countries “follow.”
modern military technology, science and technology focus on a country’s real healthy, it is also a comprehensive test of a country’s innovation capability. In recent years, rapid development of China’s military technology, often receive special attention, and even foreign, said China is changing the long-term “to Russia”, showing from behind the trend. But we have to admit that China’s military self-contained there is a long way to go than the civilian technology to catch up with world-class level but also difficult.
According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s long-term analysis of the past decade, the Chinese military in the international export market share falling instead of rising, the export volume ranking has dropped to 12th in the world. Although there are some people still advocate the “China military threat” that China has one of the top five arms-exporting countries, but the fact is that China’s arms exports was only a fraction of the United States, less than the former 1/10. China’s military in the end how the global arms market is a mirror.
must admit that a prolonged slump in exports of weapons, with China’s strict export controls have a great relationship. Long-term follow China sell weapons to sovereign countries only principles, requirements of military end-users and recipients to provide proof of use, promised not to transfer to a third party weapons imported from China. China in accordance with international rules of trade, development and stability of the military is very difficult to find fault with the international public opinion.
but more important reason is clearly that those who need weapons, there are better choices. China’s sophisticated weapons did not form a systematic, technically difficult to compete with the United States and Russia, and some high-tech arms exports but also by foreign sub-suppliers to contain. Many of China’s advanced core technologies of military components, or rely on other countries.
international military market is not a farmers market, the global trade rules of ordinary consumer goods is not very useful. “Affordable” military action although it can sell, but the arms market is always cutting-edge equipment, the high ground. No original series of advanced technology and complete equipment, it is very difficult in the world arms market foothold.
an arms market in the world can not get ahead of the country, will not be a technological power. Military power in the past that every major breakthrough in military technology, the advent of every new type of military, have brought the relevant technological revolution and industrial upgrading. U.S. military research and development of the Internet is an outstanding example.
years, Chinese military technology development by the United States and Europe of exclusion and extrusion. Western side of the talk about “China military threat” to China’s military R & D, sales obstacles; while they engage in an arms embargo on China, trying to curb China’s military development of core technology. They most want to see is that China’s military technology. The end of today to remind the European Defense Exhibition in China: the core technology can not be bought, and it is not to follow the. Improve the quality of Chinese military, the key is that you must create a Chinese-style killer have the wisdom and ability. ▲
