  • What this parade does is confirm Chinese internet-sourced imagery that has been the basis for most open source analysis in recent years.
  • The parade is all about signalling – both to international and domestic audiences of China’s strength and invulnerability.
  • The context of this parade is different compared to the last one in 2009. The US and China are engaged in fairly overt strategic competition in the Asia-Pacific region at the moment, and Chinese power projection via this or other military equipment is not playing too well with its neighbours.
  • The big things that are missing from this parade, with it being in Beijing, are China’s major advances in naval equipment. That’s where China is really changing the balance of power in Asia.
