One thing worth notice in China’s military parade on September 30 is that JH-7A fighter/bomber that usually took part in such parade did not appear this time. In its stead, a brand new homegrown J-16G fighter/bomber was showcased in the parade.

J-16G has not only better ground and sea attack but also strong electronic warfare capabilities, which is very important in penetrating air defense to hit its targets.

    Rather than parading it it should be used to bomb Indian troops out of Chinese territories and patrol the skies over Sikkim as a “No Fly Zone” against India as punishment for trespassing into Donglang.
