China is the fourth largest exporter of weapons in the world.

China is the fourth largest exporter of weapons in the world.

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute released the 17 report, stating that China took the 4 position in the world in arms exports, reported today.

Chinese buyers weapons steel 35 countries, the first three places are Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar. Western media believe that middle-income countries are importers, but China can eventually enter the market of developed countries.

China and Pakistan jointly developed the JF-17 fighter and the main Khalid battle tank. Russian Agency RIA News reported that in the 2012-2015 years, Pakistan will receive six Chinese F-22P stealth frigates totaling $ 970,9 million. The ship is equipped with an 76 mm gun mount, anti-ship and anti-aircraft missiles and a Z-9 helicopter.

The report also said that China has the opportunity to defeat Western companies in the competition for the supply of military equipment to Algeria, Morocco and Indonesia. In August 2010, an American source for Defense News reported that Morocco had purchased 150 Chinese main combat tanks VT1A (pictured), which will become the basis of the tank fleet of this country in the next 20 years. These tanks are better suited for operations in desert conditions than the American M60A3 and French AMX-30 armed with the army. The tank, created on the basis of MVT-2000, has a combat weight of 49 tons, has increased mobility, is equipped with a modern fire control system and a powerful 125 mm smoothbore gun, capable of hitting moving targets at a distance of 2000 m. The tank has a modern thermal imager adapted for operation at high outdoor temperature in dusty sandy environments.

In 2009, Algeria purchased the Chinese training ship, which is the largest in its navy. At the beginning of this year, deliveries of 50 Chinese 155 mm PZL45 self-propelled howitzers began.

Indonesia and Thailand have chosen the Chinese C-802 anti-ship missiles for their Navy. RCC has a length of 6,8 m, warhead weighing 165 kg and a range of more than 120 km.

      China is the fourth largest exporter of weapons in the world.

      Not surprisingly, the ability to copy equipment and undermine all over the world at the lowest prices do their job.

      Selling weapons is a serious business. You develop your science, build defense industry enterprises, develop infrastructure, stimulate resource flows, find new technologies that will also be used not in the military sphere, produce military equipment (creating capacities, jobs and qualified personnel), and you also huge money pay! The worst part is that China is taking away our sector of the arms market! However, he has already gone beyond it! The same Morocco bought equipment in France and the USA, now China!
      Military equipment is the leverage of the importing country on the exporting country!
      I am glad that China has squeezed France and the United States, sad that it was not we who did it!

      Only strong and skillful.
      The Chinese are not simple, where you sit there and climb down.
      Well, it’s not profitable for them to butt with us now. Whom we have no one to be friends with strategically.
      The US is sleeping, they see attacks on China with the silence of the Russian Federation.

      Right! Demonstration campaign in Crimea, I hope will serve as a visual aid for China, as Russia will now relate to its territories and people.

    Yes. Competitor. Moreover, the Russian Federation must be modernized rapidly.
    It's time to introduce the technology of 3-printers and print technology at a fast pace.
    This will reduce the cost of production, reduce output prices and win the sales of all competitors. What Rogozin hinted at.
    If we now jump into the next production structure, introducing the latest production technologies, we will be the first in everything.

    Both good and anxious. In terms of joint containment of the West, this is certainly good news, military potential and all that. But as with the neighbor - you still need to keep an eye out, the Chinese brothers are peace-loving people, but God saves those who are safe.

      But now, against the background of the situation with Ukraine, China is providing us with restrained political support.

        Of course, and thanks for that. I am sure that when and if they are going to resolve the issue with Taiwan, we will also support them in the political arena.

    Especially with China, it's not worth "fraternizing"! He has his own "plans". And in the UN Security Council, he somehow did not actively support us! China plays on the principle of "Both yours and ours."

    Price minus quality is good in short local conflicts. The deterioration of such a technique can fail at any time. And this is fraught with consequences. In a serious conflict, the sane would choose reliability.

    China. Oh, this China. Rather a friend than an enemy, but on your own mind. He knows very well that even the mighty USSR planned a possible full-scale war with China only with a nuclear one, otherwise this one and a half billion mass simply cannot be contained. China is already suffocating within its borders with its monstrous population. Nearby, the Siberian expanses, but, scary ... Even now, Russia surpasses China ten times in nuclear weapons, not to mention the quality and variety of delivery vehicles for "gifts." Kazakhstan? Also dumb, again, Russia will stick.

      China needs to be wary, especially, but look at the map of China’s population density, and you will understand where China’s aspirations are primarily directed. For information: in many territories adjacent to us, the population is almost 0. For China, the main opponent of the United States on the issue of expanding its territory is the guarantor of the inviolability of many states that have territorial disputes with China.

    And who did they copy the ballistic anti-ship missile from? Have you ever tried to copy something else? If you understand the issue, then it’s easier to do your own than to subtilize the adaptation of a stranger to your industry, double work. Remember the Soviet Union copied the Tu-4, it was necessary to develop and create special production, because it was not possible to fully adapt to our industry. But for training, copying is the very thing, a person first understands how it works, then reproduces it, then compares the results, then understands what and why he did wrong, although everything seems to be very helpful.

      but it’s easier to push around from off-the-shelf technologies, not from empty space. Tu-4 is just the answer of the USSR that we too can so ...

    probably remember the joke about how the blueprints of a modern Soviet aircraft got to the Japanese, so any copy will never be better than the original, the question is used here about the quantity of produced clone products and not about quality, but with demand for quantity and price lower
