According to the Pentagon, China is now the world’s leading military naval power.

Chinese military shipyards produce a bewildering amount of submarines. China already boasts 12 nuclear-powered and 46 diesel-powered submarines, which are gradually being geared up with Russian anti-ship missiles.

This rise in power escapes the rules of conventional geopolitics which portray the Anglo-Saxons as the Maritime Empire, while the Russians and Chinese are credited with controling Eurasia.
