    It seems that China is trying to shift the aerospace region in its direction. The fleet is increasing rapidly. The supply of armored vehicles is also growing not weakly. It would be time to determine the limit of their development beyond which the potential will begin so that there would be no unpleasant surprises in our direction

      If China invades Mongolia and Kazakhstan, then with a 15206 km line of the southern border, Russia will have to dodge as a recently bankrupt businessman with a bunch of loans with a house on bail.

    I heard about combat training, they were registered in several countries, but do we have any other positives from this exhibition in our military-industrial complex? Or did the Chinese take off all the cream?

    Yes, I didn’t find anywhere else information about our successes at the exhibition in China. So we showed what they can already do. And the Chinese thought that we would bring something new. Hopes - did not materialize. Sincerely.
