Why was the 04 IFV not shown in the TV coverage of the parade? There's literally one shot with it, a very wide shot where the vehicles are barely visible. And no close ups at all, unlike pretty much all other systems paraded.
Type 96 was also absent at the 2017 PLA anniversary review/parade and the 2015 Victory Day parade. I think they only want to show the latest and greatest or new developments for each equipment category.
