I don't necessarily mean comparable in size but in capability. I don't think China can really take on Taiwan especially with the direct support they get from Western partners similar to what we've seen with Ukraine. Having no officers or leadership who know how to conduct war will make it very costly no matter how advanced you are.

China is building a giant paper tiger army. They're completely untested and none of their military doctrine has ever been tested. I have no doubt that technically China has military worth respecting but I have zero faith they can conduct a large military operation against any comparable force and win.
