Amid renewed jostling between the world’s great powers, it is the pace of military modernisation in China that stands out. China’s once bloated armed forces are becoming leaner and a lot more capable. The IISS declares that China has become an innovator in military technology and is “not merely ‘catching up’ with the West”. “The Military Balance” believes that a version of the missile is in the works that will have a cruise speed of Mach 3. As “The Military Balance” puts it, air superiority “will have to be won—and likely only temporarily—with the commitment of a level of ‘blood and treasure’ not required since the end of the cold war.”
