Topic: Japan vs. China


no help from USA for Japan.
no nukes can be used, but regional factors and economic factors shall be considered.

Who will win in the battlefield or win strategically?
---------- if a war is going to happen now or 5 year later?

Japan isn't in much of a position to do much militarily. China is. Its kindof a pointless question really. The real question would be, "How long could Japan survive?"

I heard Japan have pretty decent ships and can build ever higher quality war mahines in a very short period of time. Its budget is the second largest in the world.

Japan is mainly defensive though, Their military is great but not enough to handle China all by themselves....

Currently, Japan can still outproduce China in economic output. So if you somehow freeze all economic growth or stagnation and give them 5 years to build a better miltiary ... they could probably keep China from beating the crap out of them TOO quickly. That said, I don't think Japan will ever again be in the position it was in WW2 - beating the crap out of China, and actually successfully invading the Chinese mainland.

godofthunder9010 and whosewar2000 your words are wise! :P

Yeah i dont think Japan will ever return to those days of WWII.... I think there is something in their constitution that talks about military buildup and such.

Guys, Japan has one of the most sophisticated militaries in the world. In terms of tech, they are top notch. Their wealth is so massive that if a need for a military arose, they'd buy the stuff they need overnight built around their Self Defense Force.
For infantry, they can call up thousands of Karate Black Belts LOL.
Seriously. China would have to launch an amphibious assault. The Chinese won't have a chance in hell against Japan.

That is similar to my point and also the reason I raised this topic.

Anybody get detail comparison between these two? especially weapons, navy or airforce ..etc

I know Japan claim that they have the best anti-subs equipments in the world.......but the let Chinese new sub swim freely nearby their coast months ago......so I really donot know.

I'm quite aware of Japans economic output, and the fact that they have very good tech. But realistically... Japan doesn't stand a chance.

Listen, China's ability to take Taiwan is even in question. If that's in question, a war against Japan is practically an unquestionable Japanese victory.
