Some thoughts at the Diplomat on the evolution of China’s long-range air capabilities:

A recent RAND report highlighted the problems facing the PLAAF, as well as its effort to develop solutions in response to them. The report described the extent of the PLAAF’s international experience, as well as its performance in recent domestic support operations that involved the use of long-range transport.  The report concluded that while China’s air force has increased its expeditionary capacity, it remains well behind the US Air Force (USAF) and many European air forces.
