To ellaborate further on what others have said about the troop numbers...It's simply impossible to field 200 million men, especially for an invasion
force. It's really impractical to have a military larger then a few million. You couldn't organize, control, supply, or feed an army of that size.
China's economy could in no way afford to launch an invasion on Russia, let alone with those numbers. An invasion is very costly, and China's
economy, while powerful, certainly isn't strong enough to afford a long drawn out war in Russia. That's especially true while they rely on foreign
investment, which I'd think would be quickly cut off with any attempt.
Technologically the Russians are still the superior to the Russians. The T-98 is better than any current Russian tank, but is still very few in
number. The Chinese only havea few hundred fourth generation planes, the rest are mostly useless. Most of China's airforce, navy, and air defenses
are built up near Taiwan (at least I think they are), as well.
Moving troops across the area you talk about is no easy task, either. China's army lacks real mobility at this time. There's no way they could move
millions of men across Russia.
