Note:
(a) Boeing C-17 Globemaster

(b) "Cliff, who co-authored the Rand book 'Ready for Takeoff: China’s Advancing Aerospace Industry,' said this all raises questions about the design capabilities of China’s military aviation sector."

(c) "Western aviation primes continue to outpace China when it comes to most military aircraft and technologies, particularly in propulsion, navigation systems and defense electronics, and high-end composites."

prime (n) “the chief or best individual or part: PICK <prime of the flock, and choicest of the stall--Alexander Pope>”

(d) "Raska, who co-authored the book 'China’s Defense Aviation Industry,' said these barriers can be seen in the research and development and production of select advanced materials and composites needed for their fifth-generation fighters, including high-end aluminum alloy products, aramid fiber, carbon fiber, high-performance steel, nitrocell, titanium alloy and tungsten alloys."

(ii) aramid
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aramid
(The name is a portmanteau of "aromatic polyamide")

is used in bullet-proof vest, for example.
(iii) The "nitrocell" seems to refer to nitrocellulose, which is used in explosives. I do no know why it is broached here.

(e) "China’s only two domestic makers of aramid fiber, Suzhou Zhaoda and Tayho, commenced production in 2010 and 2011, respectively. "
