    True Reagan said that to Gorbachev, but he also said it's a Russian phrase. Gorbachev had a good laugh when Reagan utter it in Russian.

    not to go off topic here, I posted in
    Modern CIWS & Anti-Missile Systems (Deployed and in development) 4 minutes ago
    "With new materials better able to endure the intense stresses, the barrels on the current test weapons can last for hundreds of shots before requiring replacement — roughly how long a battleship’s 16″ barrels lasted back in World War II. The goal is a barrel that lasts 1,000 rounds."

    Nice, I extended your quote by one sentence to show that barrel wear has been a problem. So from one shot to several hundred in a decade. I would call that a significant technical challenge, even if it appears to be a past one for the US.

    What do you know turn out the US more or less solve the problem So I expect China would do the same. Nothing is impossible if you put effort and money into it . And China has plenty of both
