CHINA IS NO MATCH FOR THE U.S NAVY EVEN IF IT HAS MORE SHIPS -PENTAGON CHIEF

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said Wednesday that while China has more ships, it’ll be a while before it can match the power of the US Navy.

“I want to make clear that China cannot match the United States when it comes to naval power.,” Esper explained at a RAND Corporation event.

“Even if we stopped building new ships, it would take the [People’s Republic of China] years to close the gap when it comes to our capability on the high seas.,” he said.

Esper said that the US military must take steps to maintain that overmatch, to include expanding the size of the US Navy to over 355 ships through the construction of new manned and unmanned naval assets.
