the U.S.” The New York Times’ April 13 article, the original title: China says the local development of weapons and equipment of world-class company with government background scientific organization, said many local Chinese-made weapons systems to achieve world-class level. This reflects a new self-confidence of China’s defense industry, highlighting the country hopes to become a major exporter of weapons ambitions.
China Association for Science and Technology, a report said the weapons of science and technology advances in China manufacturing armored vehicles, missile systems and other weapons and lay a solid foundation. The report said: “In some areas, China’s weapons at or near the world advanced level.” But this report did not elaborate.
China to rely on Russia to provide advanced military equipment in recent years invested heavily in developing the local defense industry, and has made many breakthroughs, such as the F-10 fighter and the development of DF-21 intercontinental ballistic missiles. China has been licensed production of Su-27 fighter, also claims to have mastered self-development of advanced aircraft technology.
steady growth in military spending contributed to the progress of weapons development. Last year, China’s military budget soared, causing the United States and neighboring countries such as Japan worry about China’s intentions. Beijing insists it has no intention of aggression and expansion, and that many expenses are used to improve military weapons, uniforms, training and standards of living.
as a weapon-exporting countries, China has long been the supply to the developing countries a simple, inexpensive equipment, such as the Chinese version of the Kalashnikov rifle, and jointly developed with Pakistan’s JL-8 jet trainer aircraft . Technological advances allow China to more than Russia, France, Britain or the United States of similar products at lower prices to expand customer base. The late 1990s, China’s defense industry on a large scale reform, the introduction of competition and efficiency mechanisms, but rarely release the specific number of weapons production scale.
large-scale training and equipment needs to be improved, but the People’s Liberation Army, used to cover their own equipment, which led to foreign military observers have speculated that a low level of Chinese military technology, do not want to lose face. This attitude began to change in recent years, increasing the degree of openness. For example, later this month, the Chinese Navy plans to entertain the United States and other countries from the ships in the navy’s 60th anniversary. ▲ (Author Christopher ?
