Perhaps the only major country with a trade surplus , huge cash reserves and great manufacturing infrastructure to build a 1000 ship navy at a whim has one serious weakness- Technology- Chinese espionage globally is at an unprecedented level- would u agree when Chinaessentially steals the F-22 its the final stepping stone to taking the worst job in the world - Globo superpower#1.

I agree spying help to reduce the gap, but first condition for China to access superpower status is state of the art technology and they don't have it in military field.
For now their armed force are just a little potent to resist a limited US attack surrounding their territory.
Sure, they can prevent full ground invasion from USA but not more.
They are not a wolrd power.
I don't see them closing technological gap before 2030.

A french general said publicly last year that China outside its border has no more capability than Spain which is not bad but far to be a superpower.
