    China can always put under arms more than 10 million trained, combat-ready citizens (soldiers).

      The modern army does not crush the enemy with infantry columns, therefore, l / s is reduced, and this speaks of the modernization of the PLA of the PRC.
      According to the IHS consulting agency, China will double its military budget by 2020 compared to the beginning of the current decade.
      IHS experts published a forecast on the growth of China's defense spending. According to the stated estimates, by 2020 the volume of military spending in China will increase to $ 260 billion. This is almost twice as much as in 2010, which amounted to approximately $ 134 billion. In general, it is expected that China’s total defense spending over the current decade will be almost $ 2 trillion

        the number of personnel of the armed forces of China will be reduced by 300 thousand people.

        Suddenly.what There are several options, or such a number of infantry is no longer needed and China will bow down to modernized motorized brigades of the French type.
        According to the foreign press, the mechanized brigade is the smallest tactical unit capable of waging all types of military operations both as part of a division and independently. According to the state, it consists of a headquarters, a battalion of command and control, reconnaissance and engineering companies, two mechanized, tank and self-propelled artillery regiments. The brigade has 3930 medium tanks AMX-900, 54 light tanks AMX-63, 73 self-propelled 51-mm guns, 16 armored personnel carriers, over 155 different vehicles and other military equipment.

        Either China believes that there will be no big war in the near future.
        But most likely the first. Here is an excerpt from the American article 2014 of the year.
        ... the land forces of China have undergone significant changes over the past two decades. The staff was reduced by several million people. The number of field armies and shock divisions was also significantly reduced. At the same time, China’s rapid economic growth allowed it to increase its defense spending as well as financing high-tech modernization in a short time.

      That's the trick, they officially reduced it, but the resettlement of 300 well-trained fighters in the Eastern and coastal areas with Japan ... this is cunning in Kyrai.
      Something like a Soviet anecdote, about a “peacefully” plowing tractor that knocked out five tanks and shot down two enemy attack aircraft ...

      probably reduced the sick and old ... wassat if you imagine how much they can call in case of mobilization, the figure of 300 is simply ridiculous.

          Nothing was dull ... Apparently you were not in Moscow and you don’t know that Red Square in comparison with Tiananmen is generally tiny ... I watched the Beijing parade today and was impressed by the size of their area. The Chinese took a lot of equipment, but in spite of the excellent organization, they went too far east ... It looked a bit redundant ... A large number of long-wheel vehicles surprised me, the drones surprised almost the American clones ... The rockets also impressed ... There were such trucks large diameter ...

        What kind of missiles were there, the commentator said the speed is 10 times the speed of sound, like the hypersonic ones that we and Americans are only working on what
        It is a pity that there was no sensible commentator in our country who would chew that the Chinese had rolled out to the parade sad

    with an army of 2.5 million, I readily believe in this statement)

    This indicates the economic problems in China.

    Many unjustified costs are subject to reduction.

    The Chinese wise people and their leaders defend the interests of the country, than,
    unlike many hysterical-verbose governments that sometimes do not understand what they are saying, cause respect.

      China's economy is focused on external consumption, primarily the US and the EU. Global demand is falling and the recession will continue. They will not have a sweet time.
      Also, as a special concern for the population, the absence of a pension system should be noted(I speak with sarcasm).

    Dragon shows teeth. Starry whale, mainly. And at the same time to all Japanese-Malays-Singaporeans and who else is nearby. The fleet of China will now build quickly, quickly. Including submarine missile carriers. Otherwise, the mattress is not too scared. But in vain. These can build quickly and a lot. Let them be noisy and fonit, but there will be a lot of them.

      I doubt that they can build a lot. At the pace and in the quantities that we and the Americans built, no one will ever build again.

    the number of personnel of the armed forces of China will be reduced by 300 thousand people.

    China can easily afford it. The army is equipped and continues to be equipped with new equipment, in addition, huge reserves of enlisted personnel. A reduction of 300 thousand - a big financial savings.

    The more modern the army the shadow becomes smaller, the main thing here is not to reduce the number of reservists.
    This, incidentally, applies to our country ...

    An old joke.
    "The Chinese are discussing an attack plan on the USSR:
    - we will cross the border in small groups of 8 - 9 million people per
    each.
    - Let’s put infantry around the edges, and tanks will go in the center.
    - why tanks in the center?
    - why am I going to cut the only tank in half? "

    PS Who would have thought that after a couple of decades, the descendants of the first man who mastered space would buy high technology from China?

      let's clean: technology is not China. Most of their defense industry and industry as a whole is based solely on our technologies, and then on the western ones!
      90% of their military-industrial complex developments are rooted in the USSR military-industrial complex. Look at their ships, missiles, armored vehicles, helicopters and aircraft ...
      And what technologies does the Russian Federation buy in China? remind ....

        The Chinese vehicles that drove at the parade are clones of the Russian, American and Israeli ... There are actually more Chinese in the remakes ...
