Unbalanced defense is preferred for this region.

Fighting against Europe and Africa , this region is at it's most vulnerable .

Death and destruction of the middle-east , India , Pakistan and part of Western China is inevitable. Naval Power also has very limited effect in such conflicts.

However in the Russia+China , US+NATO conflict

The Russian missile shield will help shave off lots of incoming missiles from NATO , while you can focus on decimating America and her forces.
