They are definitely developing at a good clip, however it's only certain units for the time being that are really comparable to western armies but as we speak they are slowly bridging the gap, theyre turning their quantity into quality. Where they really are far behind is an expeditionary capability they just don't have the experience with long range logistics as the Americans, Or other NATO countries, which makes their military a "defence" force they have no force projection capability. They wouldn't be able to have the capacity to fight far from China, and anybody that tries to invade China would be stupid. So they look intimidating but they are quite static. I believe in 20years maybe even 10 they will be a truly fearful but at the moment they aren't. They also don't have the airpower to contend with the US or its allies. You can't even compare a j7 or j10 to an f16 or f15.Yes, but usual quantity win wars. And I will not agree that China have low quality weapons and equipment. In past 20 y they modernized army in probably second world power.
Also when they make things for army they pay attention on quality. That's not same chip shit that they selling all over the world. Yes, most of their advanced weapons are made by copying Russian and Western originals, but through the years they really have become masters of copying.
Anyway they are not same China from 30 years ago and definitely not country to ******* around with.
In recent years geopolitical scene are drastically changed. We have powerful China. Russia regain some of it power so Cold War 2 is in bloom. Also some other players on scene. Hmm, very interesting time to be alive.
Watch closely Turkey and Erdogan. He is important game changer in recent years. There is many going on about who will sell gas to the Europe. We have Syria mainly because of that. (there is other reasons too, but that is big one). We will see more conflict because of that "gas selling" crisis
