Question by MR. RED M&M: Australia’s military build-up, war in the south Pacific?
Many south asian nations if drastically increased military spending in the last 10 years and now Australia is preparing their biggest military build up since WW2 which includes: 100 fifth generation stealth capable strike fighters, 12 new submarines, 4 AWD to the RAN which are armed with Cruise missiles capable of striking 400 km from the Australian shoreline. is war coming to the south Pacific? China is becoming a stronger military power in the pacific region daily as the USA’s influence in the region declines. Japan has also boosted spending in their “self” defence force due to fears of a Chinese led invasion.

Question by Notyme4BS: Is the a real possibility of the U.S. having a traditional non-nuclear war with a major military power?
Wouldn’t technology make it extremely difficult to even get military assets to a foreign power, or vice versa?
For example, can’t navy ships be sunk by cruise missles while they’re thousands of miles away. Can’t major powers see where our ships & planes are with satelite & vice versa. How would we land troops in Russia or China for an invasion?
Answer by Futile
Non-nuclear doesn’t mean non-technological. We could have wars without nuclear energy or weapons, if the possibility ever arose. But if we didn’t have technology, how did the war begin in the first place?
And if we can’t go to them, how can they come to us?

Question by lucky: does the U.S military have a supersonic antiship cruise missile? or an actual defense against the russian one?
My brother is on an aircraft carrier in the gulf….says they are all freaking out about the new russian missile china and iran has. That the US military is lacking in anti missile technology…and also has nothing to match the russian made new “sunburt” missile. Is this true?
Ive been looking around the web/asking questions. So far…what ive found out is 1)The us does not have a supersonic missile. he have the harpoon which is from the 70’s. As far as defense we have the Aguies(sp?) system that the russian missile was made to destroy.
Further question. If we have a military budget spending more the the russians and china…why dont we have better technology?

Question by Mr Miyagi wants a kiss: Has China already got more military equipment as it is 20 times cheaper to build a missile in China?
Many people point to China’s military budget when comparing it to other nations but military equipment is made much more cheaper in china. To build a cruise or nuclear missile in the USA they first have to ask the Chinese if they can use their rare earth materials (98% of all rare earth materials come from China). The Chinese can make everything from jet fighters to jeeps for a fraction of the cost of ther nations. If you account for how cheap they can produce military equipment how long before they are the number 1 military power? That is if they are not already.
Answer by Satellite
No. China’s military hardware and logistics is dwarfed compared to the US. The near entirety of the Chinese forces is comprised of unarmoured infantry.
