France Provides China with Nearly All Military Technology China LacksPosted: May 31, 2016
The Depth Column of mil.news.sina.com.cn publishes an article on China’s success in winning over US ally France to supply Chinese military with what it lacks.
The article mainly concerns warship guns. China found its warship guns imported from the Soviet Union outdated in early 1980s. France sold two advanced guns to China and provided China with some technology that the article gives no details of. Anyway, China has been able to develop advanced warship guns with combined French and Chinese technology.
The article only says that France has provided Chinese military with whatever it lacks but gives no details about that. This blogger has some posts on the provision of weapons and weapon technology to China by US allies Britain, Germany, France and Israel. Readers may find more information in those posts.
