    They'll need to be developing a lot more of their own technology instead of buying or stealing everything. :hsugh:

    in what? they already out number us. they have proven that they have a decent blue water capability. they are buying advanced aircraft systems from russia. I'd say at this point they are a match.

    I've always been told the opposite, that they don't have the capability to transport large forces across the sea. For instance, I was told they don't have the capability to invade and occupy Taiwan properly without it turning into their own Iraq.

    Yeah no kidding.

    In their defense though, they weren't doing an anti-submarine drill(which if they were and they spotted the chinese sub all kinds of bad shit probably would have gone down). And subs running on electric are hard to pick up at all using only passive sonar. A few pings of active sonar would have lit that Chinese sub up like a Christmas tree though.
    So its not like they were unable to find it, they just weren't looking for it.
    Still, I am glad I'm not in their shoes.

    No need to get pussy hurt over it. Both China and America know, we are still superior.

    who knows what their motivation was behind this, but it surely wasn't a coincidence.

    My point, is that you didn't have a point and you decided to laugh it off instead of admitting that you had no idea what you were talking about.
