Webinar: Chinese Military Modernization

The U.S. intelligence committee has warned that Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to have a military capable of seizing Taiwan by force within five years. Whether the nation will meet that goal is an open question. 

But Aviation Week Defense Editor Steve Trimble and Senior Analyst Matt Jouppi will discuss the massive ramp up in development and production of Chinese aircraft. 

People's Liberation Army, Navy and Air Force have been steadily accumulating new fighters, trainers and helicopters by the hundreds – while quietly developing next-generation strategic and tactical bombers as well.
