South China Morning Post reported on July 23 that the Southern Theatre Command of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) showcased the weapons during a visit by top military officers.



General Fan Changlong, vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission, said, “Air and sea patrols should be tightly organised to handle all kinds of emergencies to ensure security of sea and air borders.”

Among the weapons are the new H-6K bombers and a division of jets, both of which were shown in the footage. The H-6K is a formidable bomber which is also dubbed as China’s B-52.

Experts said that the kinds of weapons on display are defensive in nature indicating that China is only trying to scare the US from getting more involved in the South China Sea dispute.
