In summary, the Chinese shipbuilding industry:Consider the qualities differences as well, being the most significant as compared to the differences in other US-Chinese platforms.
The differences are really shocking overall.
1. Can produce surface warships comparable in terms of technical specifications to their US counterparts.
2. Has a lot of spare shipyard capacity to produce more warships
3. And is competitive on a commercial basis, so warship construction costs are low.
So surface navy production can be ramped up usefully.
But this doesn't apply generally to the aviation industry.
So it would be better to wait until the Chinese aviation industry has caught up, then consider ramping up production.
But we're starting to see that with the H-20, J-20, J-31, Y-8 variants etc
