Special Report: Russian Stealth Fighter Represents Future of Indian Air Force
The developing rivalry between China and India represents one of the most fascinating cases in modern international security studies. The most obvious cause for that fascination is that both countries have rapidly developing economies and populations of over one billion, but there are others. Whereas China and India have more or less free market economies, India is the world's largest democracy while China remains a one-party state. Both are rivals for influence in Southeast Asia and have unresolved border disputes, and even fought a brief war in 1962.
Finally, both China and India are engaged in systematic military modernization, and the only two states in the world engaged in such a large-scale armaments program. In many ways, the only truly revealing comparative case for measuring China's military modernization and divining its priorities therein is India, and visa versa.
China vs. India Military Match-Ups provides a concise index of the military systems in use by China and India, using open source intelligence materials and public domain imagery. The aim is to provide an accurate and unbiased picture of the relative merits of the two country's naval and military inventories, and therefore avoids making any judgements about how a Chinese tank or fighter might fare against its Indian counterparts in an actual confrontation. Such speculation is left to the reader.
