Indeed China seems to be doing a great work, and moreover I also like some of their ideas about export weapons.
For example it seems that China is the only country to produce small size cheap planes like the JF-17 or it's predecessor the J-7, which is very clever as many countries can't always buy big planes and most western and russian producers now only make big planes like the Rafale.
Moreover the new light tank and the VT-4 are also a good way of providing modern yet affordable equipment that is more practical logistically for mountainous countries with bad infrastructure singe the VT-4 is essentially a successor to the quite light Type-85/96 series.
Besides, I also heard that China was building 2 or 3 new aircraft carriers that are going to give a huge boost to the chinese naval power, even if their existing aging carrier was removed from service in a few years.
So it looks quite cool. I wonder if China is going to reduce the size of it's military as it's quality increases. You don't really need 2 million men to kick ass in the world nowadays if the need arises.
China has decided to reduce its army, but steadily increase its navy and marine. But overall a reduction in number if i remember correctly
