    What's even more awesome is that China could conceivably fund a 1000-ship naval expansion program simply by raising their defense budget to US levels as a percent of GDP (from 2.5% to 4.7%). I want to see the look on the INS' faces when hundreds of modern Chinese carriers, destroyers and subs are cruising through the IOR and BoB every month. Will they still even think about the South China Sea?

    Although China has the ability to produce 10 airdefence destroyers simultaneously in 5 shipyards, it doesn't imply that China has the intention to do this.

    Navy is used to gain profits abroad, not just to show around your muscle.

    If you can't find profits tremendous enough to sustain the positive feedback for your navy's construction, Red Navy of USSR tells your future end.

    China must have its 1000 ship Navy and that too very soon.

    There could not be any better news than that!

    It will give employment to 1000 x 200 (taking that to be the average ship's company (manpower as it is called in naval terms) = 200,000!!
