I disagree with you. You only explain half and keep the face saving for the american.Hmm.
Please allow me to expand on these themes for general knowledge sake.
USA have deployed and extensively tested EMALS on Ford class.
PATUXENT RIVER, Md. – The Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) and Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) achieved 8,000 aircraft recoveries and launches aboard USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) on April 19, during the final independent steaming event of her 18-month...seapowermagazine.org
China have tested EMALS on land but not on an aircraft carrier yet. China will deploy EMALS on Type 003 which is under development.
“The J-35 may well represent another significant milestone in the Chinese long-term pursuit of a blue-water carrier based naval aviation capability”, said retired US naval intelligence officer, Capt. James Fanell.breakingdefense.com
China’s third aircraft carrier will be considerably larger than its predecessors, the Liaoning and Shandong, which each measure 304.5 meters in length. Earlier assessments of the Type 003 by CSIS estimated its waterline dimensions at roughly 300 meters in length and 40 meters in width.breakingdefense.com
Verdict: USA seems to have advantage in this area.
USA tested a prototype on land but pulled the plug in favor of alternatives.
The United States has lost the railgun wars.taskandpurpose.com
Both Beijing and Washington are racing to perfect this futuristic naval gun.nationalinterest.org
China have deployed a prototype on a ship.
New photos appear to show China;s electromagnetic railgun perched on the bow of a Type 072III-class landing ship at sea.taskandpurpose.com
Verdict: China seems to have advantage in this area.
American ICBM inventory is massive, and Trident II D5 SLBM is one of the most advanced with sophisticated MiRV capability (~14 warheads). This SLBM is also extensively tested for reliability. Accuracy is significantly improved with superfuze technology.
In 1990, testing of the new Trident-2 submarine ballistic missile (SLBM) was completed and it was adopted for service. This SLBM, like its predecessor Trident-1, is part of the Trident strategicen.missilery.info
How US nuclear force modernization is undermining strategic stability: The burst-height compensating super-fuzeThe combination of a lack of Russian situational awareness, dangerously short warning times, high-readiness alert postures, and the increasing US strike capacity resulting from a new fuzing system for submarine-based nuclear missiles has created a deeply destabilizing and dangerous strategic...thebulletin.org
The US Navy’s Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine USS Wyoming (SSBN-742) has launched an unarmed Trident II life-extension (D5LE) missile.www.naval-technology.com
China managed to close the gap in terms of technology with the impressive DF-41 ICBM in 2017. This ICBM also have sophisticated MiRV capability (~10 warheads). CEP is on par with Trident II D5 SLBM minus superfuze technology.
I would argue that hypersonics are great, but in the case of China and its overall nuclear weapons that are deployable, the DF-41 is the one to worry about.www.19fortyfive.com
Verdict: USA seems to have advantage in this area. China have closed the gap with DF-41, nevertheless.
You mean MRLS?
Chinese MRLS are PHL-03 and PHL-16 respectively. PHL-16 is recent and multi-munition capable.
In 2019 a new artillery rocket system was revealed in China. Its official designation is still unknown. Some sources refer it as the PHL-16 or PCH 191. This system is already in service with the China's army.www.military-today.com
PHL-16 can be equipped with Fire Dragon 480 TBM and TL-7B ASCM respectively.
American MRLS are M270 and M142 HIMARS respectively. Both are multi-munition capable and incredibly accurate.
Both can be equipped with MGM-140 ATACMS and PrSM respectively. PrSM will replace MGM-140 ATACMS in fact.
The Army Just Tested Its New Ballistic Missiles That Takes Aim At Previously Prohibited Ranges (Updated)The Precision Strike Missile was expected to fly at least 499 kilometers in the test, just shy of a range limit in a former treaty with Russia.www.thedrive.com
Former USSR and USA had INF treaty in times of Reagon administration due to which USA did not develop different types of missiles with both nuclear and tactical applications (TBM - IRBM). USA under Trump administration ditched INF treaty in 2019 due to concerns that Russia was not following it to the letter.
Due to INF treaty, China had the opportunity to outrange USA in the MRLS regime with PHL-16. This advantage will not last, however.
Verdict: China seems to have advantage in this area with PHL-16. But USA is about to bridge this gap.
China developed, tested and fielded MRBM class DF-17 HGV for military applications in 2019. CEP is 'within meters' which is good enough for large stationary targets.
The DF-17 (Dong Feng-17) is a Chinese medium-range missile system equipped with a hypersonic glide vehicle. It has an estimated range of 1,800-2,500 km.missilethreat.csis.org
China launched an HGV prototype from an orbital platform to see how it works in this case. The test was successful but HGV suffered degradation in accuracy. China have denied a test of this nature.
It shall be noted that the USSR introduced the concept of Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS) but dropped it. China attempted the same but also dropped it.
The Soviet Union wanted a nuclear weapon that could stage a “backdoor” strike on US soil.www.airforcemag.com
China’s Claim That Its Fractional Orbital Bombardment System Was A Spaceplane Test Doesn’t Add Up (Updated)The system could give China the ability to strike any target on Earth unpredictably, but so far Beijing is acting like the test didn't happen.www.thedrive.com
USA developed and tested an ICBM class HGV prototype in 2010 and 2011 respectively. It is identified as the DARPA Falcon HTV-2.
USA dropped Falcon HTV-2 project for unknown reasons but developed (and testing) a new ICBM class HGV identified as C-HGB. This is the most accurate HGV design by far.
Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy’s remarks during a keynote speech at the Association of the U.S. Army’s virtual annual meeting appear to confirm the previously unannounced accuracy results from the Flight Experiment (FE)-2 test.aviationweek.com
C-HGB was successfully tested two times with STARS ballistic missile launch system in 2017 (FE-1) and 2020 (FE-2) respectively.
USA have developed (and testing) an MRBM class HGV identified as ARRW and a hypersonic cruise missile identified as HAWC respectively.

The Hypersonic Air-breathing Weapon Concept vehicle made a free flight at hypersonic speed as the Air Force and DARPA look to develop a hypersonic missile.www.airforcemag.com
Verdict: China managed to operationalize MRBM class HGV capability before USA.
South Korea is the first country to explore 5G ICT technology concepts back in 2008.
Chinese company Huawei outpaced other companies by developing and deploying 5G ICT technology on large scale, however.
Looking ahead to the future of the expected 5G roll-out in 2020, here's a timeline of all the developments so farwww.techadvisor.com
USA launched a campaign to counter-check global market share of Huawei, however.
Embracing a leadership role in Open RAN would be a boost for the U.S. economy as well as a major step in countering the Chinese challenge.www.forbes.com
5G commercial rollouts accelerated in the past year despite disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, reaching 158 local operators with active networks in 67 markets worldwide as of March 2021.www.spglobal.com
This article argues that China's 5G wireless information and communications technology poses serious risks to privacy and national security and describes a U.S.-Japan strategy for countering these threats.www.rand.org
The competition among equipment makers, countries and cellphone companies is heated. Here are the leaders in each of those races.www.wsj.com
Verdict: China outpaced others in developing and deploying 5G ICT on large scale. USA is attempting to erode this advantage with its Carrot and Stick Foreign Policy, and two American companies Apple and Ericsson seem to gain from this dynamic lately.
After a long and thankless struggle to get EMALS, a groundbreaking electromagnetic launch system, headed in the right direction, the Navy deserves to fully exploit the potential of this—and other—hard-won and working high-tech components of America’s new aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford.
Forbes are doing another propaganda by giving the impression electric catapult reliability is solved. That is yet to see after 2022 mid relaunch after refit.
Selectively omitted Chinese most advance ICBM DF-41 while pick on sea based ICBM.
As for 5G , I need not say more. Many companies need to pay Huawei royalty when using current 5G.
The railgun of US are unreliable and too bulky. Not fit to fit onboard ship. If US really has such edge over railgun than China. Why would Congress cut fund for it? Definitely it's under performed and not up to expectation. Nothing to do with lack of fund or what.
