Everyone copies everyone, this is how the world develops, US also copied many stuff from other countries before. I m asking what "high tech stuff‘’ you claimed that your Indians focus on, can you be more specific? I like to know where Indians stand to ridicule others.This means to copy. However, your copies are too BS. You copied Su 33 and made a junk like J15, you copied Su 27 and made a junk like J11 which was badly humiliated tiny Gripen C.
Then why do you forces start crapping in their pants when Chinese invade and take over your territory with their "crap" weapons?no, the crotale reverse engineered ripoff is not the most advanced short range air defense system. lol
Whatever China has now a days is most advance though world consider it a crap.
lol he is not talking about US territory but Indian claimed territorylol what territory? when did china take US territory?
It is good system but jury is still out on it being the best. Chinese SAMs are very bulky and less maneuverable but cost effective. US and west still have the best air defense solutions but china will catch up in a decade or so.
But they claim they focus on "high tech" stuff and that's why they don't bother to produce their own rifles...
Tejas success story
Like a decade ago, Turkey openly invited Chinese, European, and American SAM makers submit bid proposal and tested the systems from said countries. Chinese HQ-9 beats the European and American systems in both combat and cost effectiveness. HQ-9 hit 9 out of 9. Turkey wanted to buy the Chinese SAM until US threatened Turkey with all sorts of craziness (sanctions, ya know and what else?) That was the only competion of the modern Chinese SAM against Western systems. Since, the HQ-9 has evolved HQ-9A and HQ-9B. If those tests were any telling, today's Chinese SAMs are on par or better in some areas than their Western counterparts.
