Me again with another strange idea ... what do you think how likely it is that in mind of the Communist Party of China (CPC)'s 100th anniversary on 23 July 1921 there will be either a military parade similar to the one on 1st October 2019?

A parade right now is unnecessary, and would not show off that much additional assets from the last parade. Unless its a parade with Russia to show joint unity.

From the Type 056 thread, @xyqq posted this picture of a 30mm shell hitting the water..

Does anyone know if this is ever used as a tactic to create a physical water barrier that incoming cruise missiles might fly into and be severely damaged by?

Probably the last resort, but cannot count on it.

If something is capable enough to produce an impeccably timed water column to deflect an incoming guided missile, said something is objectively more than capable of either a direct hit, or at least good positioning for a proximity fuse to work.

So no, "water flak CIWS" is not really a thing. And has never been, for that matter. It's quite a imaginative idea though...:)

Hi everyone, hope I'm on the right thread for this. From commercial imagery (google maps) of the Changzhou international airport (H-6 stationed there) it is visible what seems to be an old aircraft which I'm not able to identify. Looks a bit like an overly shortened H-6 and it's parked in the westernmost shelters. Any clue? Thanks in advance.

That's a fire-fighting trainer only ... not a real H-6

Can we confirm which fighters right now are being produced?

Obvious:

J-10C
J-16
J-20
J-15 (restarted production not long time ago, I think the production still continues)

----
Does the J-10S is still being procured?

J-16D ??
J-15D ??
