China has not gone to war in 40 years and will probably not go to war in the next 40. These weapon systems are to prevent war and also expand the industrial baseChinese military is all copied and reverse engineered technology. It has no military experience. The last military battle they fought was in 1979 in Vietnam and lost it badly, although they claimed success.
They have no naval experience, none whatsoever. If they send their ships on a naval expedition either in China Sea/Pacific or Indian Ocean, then results will be a disaster for them. It is here that the numbers do not matter. It is the tactics and quality of the guns/missile which matter. Worst for them is that, the farther they are from their home base, the greater is the danger to be completely mauled by more experienced adversaries. I hope the Chinese generals and admirals know that, although this point has been missed by their political leaders.
No one wants to fight a country with three carriers (going to 6 at least and maybe even 10 in the coming decades) and 100 destroyers and frigates now and more in the future. China hopes its armed forces stay inexperienced
