Xinhua recently republished an article by Chinese Youth, which referred to a report by the US magazine Air Force Times. The article suggested that the US Air Force is focusing on three key technologies: (1) Customizable systems; (2) Mini unmanned aircraft; and (3) “Super” supersonic planes or missiles (the Boeing X-51 Project). Also mentioned in the article were the four primary imaginary enemies: China, Islamic separatists, “loser countries” and Russia. The article stated that China will have the number one GDP by 2030. Hence the order makes sense.
