Stop dreaming of day dreams!

These Russia and China are two huge nations and are acting akin to each other in a natural defending buffer between the East and West as well as between the great Pacific and Atlantic. Don't think anyone needs to ask China to be a "beggar" once more since China had had it decades ago; please try to remember it. China can't be that cheap again and not one for bargain hunters!
What's on your mind...

Western military technology is too expensive and loaded with unnecessary extras including hidden maintenance costs.  Yet many countries buy it.  Because the buyers have been seduced by the producers.

Russian military technology is cheaper than western military technology but rougher.  Not energy efficient nor precise enough and quite expensive to mass-produce.

If Russia wants to save her military technology prowess, it must quickly enter now into a real and comprehensive technology transfer program with China which can produce it more efficiently and cheaper.  The combined brainpower can overcome all the present problems hindering both from building more market share.  It will also stem the brain drain of the best of Russia's scientific minds to the west.

Remember, stealth technology was first discovered by a Russian scientist, published in an obscure journal, read by the Americans who then in their Skunk Works aeronautics laboratory used those Russian equations on radar deflection to design their stealth planes.

Russia is earning more money from exports of military hardware, and its major clients are India, Algeria, Venezuela, China and Vietnam.

In the outgoing year, Russia has sold 11 billion dollars worth of arms. Since 2000, the country’s weapons export has increased threefold. Russia’s arms export is small though compared to the  U.S, which has sold 28 billion dollars worth of military equipment this year alone.

India accounts for almost half of all the Russian arms sales............

World's largest arms exportersThe unit in this table are so-called trend indicator values expressed in millions of US dollars at 1990s prices. These values do not represent real financial flows but are a crude instrument to estimate volumes of arms transfers, regardless of the contracted prices, which can be as low as zero in the case of military aid. Ordered by descending 2000-2010 values. The information is from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.[9]
