    China is bigger than Europe + Russia + USA combined, the notion you need dozens or hundreds of tiny allies is overrated.

    In population not necessarily in GDP

    I disagree. China can stand on its own. No country is stupid enough to challenge China, giving up a huge trade partner and fight a nuclear capable country.

    Alliance is not free, you must have responsibility to protect them, which tend to benefit smaller countries than large ones, AKA not China. You will see American face the problem of stretching their force thin and constantly fight pointless wars.

    It is relative, the new russian submarines are close twice as big as the USA counterparts.

    And best part of the ship sizes of the Soviet navy was due to the required size of attack missiles.

    With the new ,smaller missiles the ships doesn't need as big as before.

    But in the long-run, how big will China's GDP be?

    Somewhere from twice as big to 4* as big.

    Depending on many factors.

    The Topol Nuclear Ballistic Orchestra - Eros A

    The following videos are old classics really, I suspect most military geeks will have seen at least one of them at some point. But I hadn't in a long while, and although the image quality is abysmal by modern standards, the chilling sound track after all these years still more than makes up for it! Maybe someone else will enjoy the trip down memory lane as much as I did.

    Both clips show the same launch, a small satellite (named Eros A) riding into orbit on the START-1 rocket, which is simply a retired road-mobile SS-25 ICBM. First one is the better known of the two, with the sound apparently recorded close up and synchronised to imagery filmed from further away - call it the radio edit:



    Less famous but equally awesome is the longer, live-in-concert version, however. Audio and video are both from the spectator's perspective, with the noise appropriately muffled and delayed, as well as audience cheers for added goose bumps:



    Now where do I get one for New Year's Eve?!
