This thesis uses articles from Chinese and Indian defense publications to analyze how the Chinese People’s Liberation Army-Navy and the Indian Navy view each other’s modernization. This thesis argues that the Chinese and Indian Navies view each other’s development through defensive realism and will take steps in accordance to their view of development. This thesis predicts that the Indians will focus on developing a navy that can defeat the PLA-N in Indian dominated waters, while the PLA-N will develop anti-submarine assets and refueling assets to counter the Indian nuclear triad, which according my analysis of the Chinese defense press, is the part of the Indian Navy that the Chinese Navy views as the biggest menace of the Indian Navy to Chinese survival.
