    On who has what kind of hardwear, yes.
    In actuallity the Russians have better equipment then the Chinies in military tech.

    But more importantly, it would be cool if we had those uniforms like in 24.

    Who cares about all that weapon stuff anyway. xD
    Instead of pumping so much money into something like that, people should rather care about the relations between the states. And maybe use the money for something which helps everyone. :P
    But it's right that China is developing very fast. However, it'll take a while for them to be able to keep up with the U.S. They might be rather good developed in the cities like Hong Kong and Peking but country sides, the situation is completely different. Many people are poor there. They first have to resolve their problems, before they can really think of updating their weapon technologies. At least that's what I think they should do. And I guess it will seriously hinder them if they won't do that.
    You are now breathing manually. :P

    Lap is correct for the most part on the Chines inferstucture. Very few of their cities are actually developed. Most of China are very poor with border line shanty towns.

    You should. Wars are not won by the ones with the biggest armies, they are won by the ones with the best tech, always have been. Whether it is the stirrup, the cannon, the a-bomb, or the smart bomb. When you have nations that have no problem expanding their borders by invading yours your best defense is up to date technology in weaponry. Some of the best defenses (good offensive capability) never have to be used because just their presence is enough to deter aggression. Sure we should talk but some people see no reason to unless you can stand and look them eye to eye first.

    Now this isn't always true... There is little doubt that Nazi Germany had superior aircraft, armor, ship and artillery development, but this didn't prevent them from losing to the allies... This statement also doesn't explain the results of the Vietnam war...
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    In the case of Nazi Germany, it was a matter of numbers. The British, Canadians, Americans, and the Soviets out numbered them.

    I'm aware of that. To be honest, I didn't mean it that seriously. It's clear that it's not possibly to dispense the defenses. At least not in the momentary situation ...
    We should forget about that whole war thingy. Would make life much easier. :P
