Both Russia and China seemed hopelessly behind, and nobody dared to challenge America's military superiority. Everyone else was battling for second place in the pecking order, and they knew it. But since that time, Russia and China have engaged in extremely aggressive modernization programs, while the U.S. military has chosen to focus on becoming more "diverse" and "inclusive". As a result, the balance of power has changed dramatically.
In this article, I would like to focus on a few examples that demonstrate the shift that has taken place.
For instance, the Russians are extremely excited about their new ultra-quiet Borei-class submarines that can rain death and destruction down upon their enemies from thousands of miles away…
Each of the submarine's sixteen R-30 Bulava ("Mace") missiles typically carries six 150-kiloton nuclear warheads designed to split apart to hit separate targets.
