MANILA, Philippines In terms of ships deployed at sea, China's navy has overtaken the United States, making it the world's largest, according to a report.

Andrew Erickson, a professor at the China Maritime Studies Institute at the US Naval War College, wrote that China fielded more battle force ships than the US Navy sometime between 2015 and 2020.

In an article titled "The Chinese Naval Shipbuilding Bookshelf", Erickson noted that with around 360 ships, China's navy exceeds its American counterpart by more than 60 warships.
