    I think the best Chinese dynasty military ever is the Song Dynasty's military.They had flame throwers,strong navies,big crossbows.

    I think I would have to disagree with you here (no offense). Because Song Dynasty even with their big weapons have half of its empire conquered by the Liao first, then the Jin. And the defeats by the Mongols are more or less humiliating since the Mongols had weaker weapons.

    I think the strongest dynasty is the Tang dynasty because of the glory that it brought China... even up till now, many people consider China as Tang Shan.

    so,how about Qing Dynasty? Governance by the Manchuria.Mongolian and Manchuria both are ethnic minorities of China.
    if Yuan Dynasty is not the Chinese Dynasty,then historians should delete it from the history of China.(宋,元,明,清)
    Mongolian ancestors, some people are Xiongnu people(匈奴人),Xiongnu's ancestor is one ethnic of Xia Dynasty of China,
    after Xia Dynasty perished,Xiongun people moved to northern grassland area of China,where was the area of now the Mongol.
    now,part of Mongolian independent,called outside Mongol,part of Mongolian still stay in China, called inside Mongol.

    Han and Tang dynasty in China's history of the two most glorious dynasty, but we should look at another aspect of history, because these two dynasties in China's history is the early dynasties, for instance, the Han population of only 30 million, the Tang dynasty a population of only 50 million, and their territory and population than the number of the Yuan Dynasty after dynasty, a far cry from, particularly the Han dynasty, when south of the Yangtze River in China has not yet developed.
    China's five dynasties, was once the world's most powerful country, is the Han, Tang, Yuan, Ming and Qing, the Yuan dynasty conquered the Eurasian continent, and the Ming Dynasty and Qing Dynasty has established a vast empire, the Qing dynasty board plans than now to the PRC, only because of the Opium War, the mid-19th century, Western powers aggression against China, so China has lost many territories.
    Because of the Han dynasty and Tang Dynasty was China's feudal society in a period of prosperity, these two dynasties of a brilliant feudal civilization, and since the Song dynasty feudal society began to decline, so there is no glory China of the Han - Tang Spirit.
    However, we are discussing is on the other hand, apart from historical civilization, and the Yuan Dynasty is the most powerful military empire, followed by the Ming Dynasty and Qing Dynasty Imperial.

    Sorry gentlemen,
    I still think the Yuan, they expanded china's military beyond it's borders.
    Just returned from Wiener Neustadt in Austria, there are mongol armor
    and helmets as well as Paize in desplay at an interesting museum.
    The mongols went this far.
    Seems PRC is using the Yuan as it's model for development.
    Visit chengjisihan.com.cn and you will know what I am talking about.

    The Yuan is just one group of Mongols. I think the problem they have for "best military dynasty" is being very short lived compared to other dynasties.

    since many people do not like the Yuan Dynasty and the Mongol, Ming Dynasty may wish to consider it a strong force, and vast territory, not be comparable to the Han Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty.
    Following is the description of the Korean newspaper Ming Dynasty Zheng He's 7th fleet voyage:

    South Korea, "North Korea Weekly" reported that: Zheng He voyage display the spirit of the core of China's diplomacy

    After 600 years of ups and downs, when it was re-mainland China, "Zheng He" Tornado.

    This year is the "Zheng He" 600 anniversary, but also rely on when China is rapidly increasing national strength, further carry forward the spirit of the Chinese nation in the new period. To commemorate Zheng He's achievements, China will be on July 11 as a "Maritime Day," and carried out various activities.

    Western started long time ago Zheng concern: in the United States, "Life" magazine organized by the Millennium contribute to the world's 100 poll figures, Zheng No. 14, ranking first in the East; by the end of December 1999, "New York Times "Millennium special planning, have chosen to Zheng a symbol of East-West cultural exchange.

    According to records, Zheng He and his fleet size of the huge world beyond imagination. At that time, the history books described the success: more than 200 vessels in the sea followed by rows at the cover of the sea, sea levels almost endless line. From 1405 to 1433 of 28, Zheng He was a 7th fleet voyage, the range of 185,000 km, equivalent to four laps around the world. Zheng He and his fleet one of the greatest masters 151 meters, 61 meters wide, with the similar size of football pitches, in the three Maritime Navigation, and when Columbus discovered the New World, led by the fleet but only three boats, 120 crew members, most Only one of the 23 meters.

    Zheng He and his fleet loaded with silk, porcelain and other goods, via Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines and India, more than 30 countries have brought Chinese culture and science and technology. So far, in Asia and along the coast of Africa in some countries still retains many of the Zheng He and Maritime relics.

    With the hope that the establishment of a colony in the New World, the economic benefits Portugal, Spain and other Western countries, China voyage is to promote the Chinese ideology, add more Tributary States. However, even if Zheng He expedition is for political purposes, but to consolidate his voyage from West Asia to East Africa sea trade routes, and annihilated a piracy, the Chinese control from the South China Sea to the eastern African maritime "Silk Road."

    Zheng He and Maritime human marine science and technology to a new stage of development for China's entry into the Southeast Asian region provides an opportunity. It can be said that since Zheng He was formally a maritime history of overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia. Zheng He and the diplomatic missions of various countries to China and promote exchanges between the countries.

    Zheng He died, abandoned the Ming Dynasty ocean lines, marine empire will be in a position to lose out. Renowned American scholar Paul Kennedy in "the rise and fall of great powers", a book commented that as the Ming Dynasty attention from overseas will be recovered, world hegemony was delivered Europe, which is to lead to the core of Chinese civilization, the main reason for the decline in the East.

    China to such a high-level evaluation of Zheng He, his command at that time the world's most powerful fleet, but not an inch of the occupied territories of other countries, instead of treating other countries, which today China's foreign policy of peace and development are the same. In other words, Zheng and
    display the core of China's foreign policy spirit.
