Cowlan, please don't tell me you really believe any of that. You think the U.S. military goes advertising around what it has in development or what
it has developed? The U.S. military isn't stupid; they aren't going to advertise to anyone what they are developing.
The Chinese, ON PAPER, are like 20 years behind the U.S. In reality, they don't have the submarine knowledge, the naval knowledge overall, or the
aerial battle knowledge, or even the land warfare knowledge the U.S. has. Or Russia has.
It's one thing to have technology, but you still have to know how to use it. The reality is China is far behind the U.S.
ALL countries have pretty been brilliant in weapons and warfare overall at some point, and if not, then usually the people that country originated
from were. Rome had some ingenious military stuff. They were Italian more or less. The Greeks had some ingenious military designs. The Chinese created
some ingenious stuff and could have kept the Europeans out of their country except they were too ignorant and ethnocentric and didn't believe
upgrading military technology was of big importance (big mistake as they found out). The Germans created some absolutely brilliant military designs.
The British created some really great stuff. The Russians created some great stuff and they still continue to do so. The Japanese created some
brilliantly designed battleships and aircraft. The French have had some cool things too. And the United States today creates a whole lot of really,
really great stuff.
The difference is in who has the money to spend to do the research on all this stuff, technology-wise, and then also has the money to do research on
how to use it. The U.S. and Russia were building all sorts of advanced weapons and the likes for years and carrying out loads of various tests on how
to conduct submarine and ship warfare, aerial warfare, etc...China was not, so I mean they have a long way to go in terms of technology development,
and then also learning how to utilize that technology, and then teaching that to their military.
The U.S. is so far ahead of them however in most of this stuff that right now it is just impossible for them to catch up.
