    Beijing (CNN)Chinese leader Xi Jinping presided over a major military parade Sunday, hours after US President Donald Trump renewed his criticism over Beijing's failure to rein in North Korea.

    The parade, long anticipated but only officially announced Saturday, was part of the celebrations of the 90th anniversary of the People's Liberation Army (PLA). It was also viewed as a potent reminder of Xi's firm grip on power ahead of a key Communist Party meeting this fall, where a major leadership reshuffle is expected.


    Unlike previous public displays of its growing military might, China held Sunday's event at the remote Zhurihe military base in Inner Mongolia -- instead of in the center of Beijing.
    A Defense Ministry spokesman said Zhurihe -- Asia's largest military training center in the middle of a desert and complete with life-size mockup targets such as Taiwan's presidential palace -- was selected to highlight the PLA's combat readiness, but he emphasized that war-zone trainings had been long scheduled.


    Dressed in camouflage, Xi -- who is the head of the ruling Communist Party and the 2 million-strong PLA, in addition to state president -- inspected 12,000 troops in various formations from an open-top military jeep.
    More than 100 planes flew overhead and almost 600 types of weaponry were on display for the occasion — nearly half of which were making their debut in public, according to the Defense Ministry.

    DF-26

    The Dong-Feng 26 (DF-26, simplified Chinese: 东风-26; traditional Chinese: 東風-26; literally: "East Wind-26") is an intermediate-range ballistic missile deployed by the People's Liberation Army Rocket Force produced by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC).[3] The DF-26 has a range of 3,000–4,000 km (1,900–2,500 mi), and may be used in the nuclear, conventional, and anti-ship strike roles.[1] The DF-26 is China's first conventionally-armed ballistic missile capable of reaching Guam and the American military installations located there;[2] this has led to the missile being referred to by netizens as the "Guam Express" or "Guam Killer".

    It will be great if we can see them in course of action. Because we know their specs but no idea of performance.

    Hopefully we won't be first dummy. This will be first and last use of Chinese war machines.
