China's nuclear arsenal will more than TRIPLE by 2035 to 1,500 warheads, the Pentagon says


China's nuclear arsenal is set to more than triple to 1,500 warheads by 2035, the Pentagon said in a Tuesday report also highlighting the increasing sophistication of the country's air force.

Washington has identified Beig as the most consequential challenge to the United States, and the annual report on China's military emphasized improvements to both its nuclear and conventional forces.

'The Department of Defense estimates that (China's) operational nuclear warheads stockpile has surpassed 400,' the report said. 'If China continues the pace of its nuclear expansion, it will likely field a stockpile of about 1,500 warheads' by 2035.

That figure would still however lag far behind the arsenals of the United States and Russia, which each include several thousand nuclear warheads.





China is also working to modernize its ballistic missiles that could deliver nuclear wons, launching some 135 in testing during 2021 - 'more than the rest of the world combined,' excluding those fired in conflicts, the report said.

And Beig's air force is making strides, 'rapidly catching up to Western air forces,' it said.

The report takes aim at the way in which China is employing its military in the Indo-Pacific region, saying it has 'adopted more coercive and aggressive actions.'




A visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in August infuriated China, which reacted with its largest and most aggressive exercises around the island since the 1990s.

Both sides have since moved to lower the temperature, but the senior defense offi al said that while Chinese military activity around T has decreased, it is still higher than before.

Beig is 'establishing kind of a new normal in terms of the level of military activity around T following the speaker's visit,' the offi al said.

Their missiles were failing and couldn't have hit anything until Bill Clinton allowed the technology exchange so they could launch satellites and now here we are.

Triple by 2035. While my state and California ban sales of gas powered cars come 2035. Seems like China has other priorities...

Should leverage the trade deals with less nukes, Restrict Food trade, Don't use America's breadbasket for the Benefit of China. Stop Investing in China too.

China will most likely wipe out enemy countries using biological warfare rather than nuclear. They want to get rid of the people, not the property.

I find it ironic that the US is the only country to use atomic wons but then say everyone else shouldn't have them in case they use them.

It doesn't matter at this point. Even though the Chicoms will still have far less than the US or Russia even after their increase, they still have more than enough to destroy all the life on the planet.

The US owns more nuclear wons than every nation except maybe Russia, and we are the first ones to tell others not to build them. The hypocrisy boggles the mind. How we even have allies is beyond me, the US is the biggest threat to world peace by far.

Russia has about 6000 nuclear wons. Decreasing the US stockpile makes the world safer is beyond me.

Not surprised but even at 1,500 it will still be less that a third of what the US maintains.
