China is investing far more money than russia both in engine and aerospace in general. while in the 1990s that investment advantage didn't mean a lot
as there was little experience and a small technology base - two decades later that continuous investment has payed off. Chinese engines currently
under development are getting really close to russian designs, their aircraft designs are comparable to russian ones and in specific areas like
electronics (avionics) and stealth they may even be little better than what russia offers.
