The Chinese navy will never match the US Navy.
Not because they can't, it's simply not practical, it has little use, it costs a lot of money, the catch up time while the US is light years ahead
China's interests are it's territory in regards to it's Navy
You have to realize, to hit America you can use distance weapons in the event of the most unlikely scenario in the world, war with the USA. If they
have any interests in regards to war or acquisition of territory or resources they have 1.5 Billion people, they are connected by land to all of Asia,
The Middle East and Europe with... 1.5 billion people.
In the event of any "rouge" china hell bent on take over of nations, it is infinitely cheaper and easier to arm your populace with assault rifles
and point to a neighbor and yell attack and if they want 20 million guys can Rush Kyrgyzstan. To attack America you have to hold supply lines across
the largest ocean in the world, it's full retard
They aren't even going to ever try to attempt force projection on our level over seas there will never be any need for them...there is Us and Canada,
frankly considering they are both Nations fastest growing minority they have quite another method to extend influence over here. Dropping off 12
million men by boat over 7,000 miles would be ridiculous.
Now for America to take territory, well 95% of the world is over there... we need that navy to be aggressive because an invasion of Mexico would yield
us good tequila and not much more. If china wants oil they can walk to get it
