China’s Rise and Modern Military Technology: Part II

This is the second of a series of three articles contributing to the debate with professor Robert Farley on the ease and challenges of imitating advanced weapon systems – which stems from our academic article “Why China Has Not Caught Up Yet.” Professor Farley’s pieces are available here: 1, 2, and 3. The first part of our answer is available here.

In this reply, we focus on a second criticism raised by Professor Farley. Namely, he has noted that while it’s true that China is behind the United States in stealth technology, China is still ahead of any other country beside the U.S. We are very grateful to professor Farley. Thanks to his objection, we can address an aspect that for space reasons we could only briefly touch upon in our article, despite being of fundamental importance.
