1999: PLA displays turn of the century style
Adjust font size:

This parade had the highest number of aircraft participating of all the National Day military parades. There were nine aircraft series and 15 aircraft types; 132 aircraft in total flew over the Tiananmen area. The reviewed weapons and equipment were from all levels including strategic, tactical and operational levels, indicating that the PLA already had a sound and modern joint operation capacity. The formation of refueling aircraft which appeared among the flight echelons showed that the PLA had remote supporting operation and remote mobile operation capacities.

The tank division, armored vehicle division, self-propelled gun division and wheeled towed artillery division reflected the great improvement in the ground fire mobility level. The development of vehicle-mounted mobile strategic missiles enhanced the remote mobile operation capacity of the PLA, eradicating the fixed silo missiles which were passive and vulnerable to attack.
