China’s Military Is Catching Up to the U.S. Is It Ready for Battle?

The Chinese military is emerging as a real competitor to the US under Xi Jinping.

The People’s Liberation Army now has hypersonic missiles that can evade most defenses, a technology the US is still developing. Its attack drones can overwhelm communications networks. China’s navy ships outnumber America’s, and the country launched its third aircraft carrier this summer, the first designed and built in the country. Its defense budget is second only to the US. The Chinese military has more active-duty members, around 2 million, compared with just under 1.4 million in the United States.
