China has become the largest importer of weapons in the region

According to the American research group "Jane" (IHS Jane's), which leads the publication, a significant proportion of the increase in Chinese imports accounted for the Russian defense industry, in particular, aviation engines and fighters.


At the same time, the main rival of China in the region - India for the first time became the world's largest buyer of American weapons, overtaking Saudi Arabia in terms of purchases. Indian arms imports amounted to 5,9 billion, where a third of the volume fell on suppliers from the United States.

According to Banes Moors, a senior analyst at Janes, in the coming years, India will continue to be one of the main importers in the international arms market. According to him, this is due to the weak military-industrial complex of the country and the large amount of outstanding work on contracts concluded earlier.

In 2013, total arms purchases by states in East and Southeast Asia increased by 24,5 percent and amounted to 12,2 billion dollars. Significant growth of this indicator was demonstrated, in particular, by Indonesia - 1,7 billion dollars (by 167,7 percent more compared to 2012) and Malaysia - 610 million dollars (growth by 40,6 percent).

According to Paul Burton, head of the Singaporean division of Jaynes, the Republic of Korea (RK) gained significant profits from active rearmament of the region. In 2011 and 2012, this country was the largest importer of weapons in this part of the world, but now, thanks to some of its own developments, the South Korean military industrial complex has begun to work more actively for the needs of foreign buyers, in particular, in aviation. Last month, Indonesia launched a squadron manned by 16 South Korean-made T-50 “Golden Eagle” fighters. The Philippines also declared its interest in acquiring 12 of such combat aircraft. Thus, in 2013, arms exports of Kazakhstan increased by 91,6 percent and amounted to 613 million dollars.

“Last year was a kind of turning point in stories South Korean military industrial complex, - said Burton. “The high level of quality of its products allows it to compete successfully in the arms market of developing countries.” According to the analyst, in the near future, Kazakhstan will be able to press on it and some Western companies.

    Well done Chinese - they bend their line and do not worry - We can - we will build, we can not - we will buy - they will not sell s314, oh, we’ll come up with ourselves,
    They plan to become a superpower while we conduct experiments on ourselves.

      They became a superpower on the very day they assembled and tested their first nuclear bomb. This is the only true indicator - the availability of own production of nuclear weapons.

      There is one point with them. They still do not have a coherent system of succession of power. Whatever they build today at the end of the term of the current head of the country, the new head will take all his rivals into the expense and it is not clear which projects will goat the crack because of this. Until they come up with a self-sufficient power, which will always be in the country, and not profit, you can not consider them enemies. Let them build. As a result, only 5 competently launched warheads can deprive them of ten percent of the population and half of the production potential, immediately instantly. After which the country in general will not.

        The most important thing is that no one knows about the quantitative and qualitative state of the Chinese strategic forces. There is no control over them. Honestly the carelessness of Russia in relations with China, as it borders on me with careless frenzy.

        Israel has nuclear weapons. but they do not seek to call themselves superpower :),
        the loss of 10% of the population will go unnoticed by China, and even free up space.
        With the continuity of power, and we have a problem - Pu will not - what will begin? - is unknown.

        Although, theoretically, you can consider the option - they give us a box of an aircraft carrier - we give them an air wing.

        It’s just with the succession of power that everything’s OK with them .... For the fourth generation of managers since Dan’s time, each successive generation has achieved greater success ... Yes, and random people don’t get into their power, there’s a tough selection (fools go there do not fall) ...

        Pakistan, Israel (rumored) and India possess nuclear weapons, which does not make them superpowers. Regional - yes.

    in the near future, the Republic of Kazakhstan will be able to supplant some western companies on it


    Press out - maybe. But a real change in the balance of power will not happen. When choosing a weapons supplier, you decide who you will be friends with, and Korea is too independent a state, nothing depends on it. wassat

    All this is undoubtedly interesting. But more interesting is the analytical calculations regarding the vectors of application of these forces.
    IMHO, India has Pakistan and the Indian Ocean, while China has the Pacific Ocean and Japan.

    Selling / gifts to China of advanced weapons will cost us dearly, they taught us on our own head, no matter how soon they themselves would have to buy their own new items from China "in view of economic profitability."

    China either feels that something is wrong in the global sense, or is preparing for an invasion ......... and Japan has no reason to do so.

    It’s bad that the Indians found another seller. A bell, or maybe a bell to our military-industrial complex.

      This is because they have chosen the right system of government and economy. Totalitarian communist control of a market economy. The market economy shows how much the product really costs, and the state does not allow itself to be deceived by controlling government procurement prices. Corruptionists and thieves are shot and they do not give a damn about American and European authorities.

    It seems to me the whole point is in preparing the establishment of the golden yuan. It was not for nothing that they announced the creation of the united BRICS bank. And the United States is like death. The main thing is that their imports do not flow into export under other names.

    The article should make you think, first of all, Security Council analysts. Painfully, the growth rates of weapons production capacities are loading everything, this also applies to purchases, it is time to sell "effective managers" in exchange for technology and capacity, and to be honest, it looks like it’s no laughing matter.

    it’s just that China realized that only with a strong army and navy can you go your own way, have your own opinion, without looking around and snuggling !! we can’t sleep either!

    I was born in Primorye, near Lake Khanka, and have lived here all my life, so I’m not afraid of the Chinese. Enemies are trying to drive a wedge between our peoples. China needs to be friends, trade, and conduct joint exercises.
    "The representative of the Ministry of Defense of the People's Republic of China Yang Yujun confirmed on February 27 the joint exercises of the naval forces of China and Russia" Sea Interaction-2014 "will be held in May-June.
    Naval maneuvers, he said, will be carried out as part of the approved military exchange program of the two countries. Details are currently consistent.
    The representative of the Ministry of Defense of China also said that China will take part in the world tank biathlon championship in Alabin, Moscow Region.

    Once I downloaded a Korean movie "R2B" (returning to base), it seems like the T-50 was promoted, but Hot Heads reminded me.
