Nice info- makes me proud we have people analyzing, pointing out, and publishing their weaknesses for them to fix. (Insert sarcasm) though I do enjoy the information. I look forward to reading it.

All of this is actually nothing new. The sources for this analysis are actually openly available academic literature and official reports by the PLA themselves.

In general, China's military is still in the transition and doctrinal problems still remain, as well as the lack of certain key capabilities. The PLA themselves do not expect a truly modernized force before 2030 anyway.

Another rather good read:

(Lt. Col Dennis J. Blasko was a long time US Military Attache in China and is probably one of the best Chinese Military analysts around)

Basically; China has the hardware, but still needs to adress weaknesses in the software. And nothing can replace real combat experience.
Again, these points are also sourced from official Chinese academic papers about their own military.

They may grow faster, but they are starting from a point pretty far back. And their economy has slowed significantly enough to puit some of their plans in doubt.
