If war broke out between Russia and China would win?Watch
Unfortunately C2 and effective well practiced ISTR capabilities don't come from mere reading. It comes from experience and lessons learnt.
When you have scholars that have been standing on the shoulders on giants for so long, it will be a tighter call imo.
I'll take it those scholars aren't down at fire team level and have experience at putting rounds down whilst doing effective fire and manoeuvre.
Apologies if it seems I've targeted your call.
China is a physically isolated country with most of China impoverished with uneven population densities > one nice missile to the coastal region will suffice. Secondly they have a poor naval infrastructure, combined with a bad current economic climate.
China doesn't have an outstanding military record as Russia does.
In the end though even if they can draw it out pure numbers and the ability to reinforce lost man/hardware makes me think China can win the day.
Also if push came to shove and the West had to pick a side, we ain't picking Putin.
In this day and era , a war between such major powers would not be a win for either side.
