August 27, 2019-Lendon says that many new weapons may be on display, including the DF-41 missile. The Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies says the DF-41 will have a range of up to 9,320 miles, which would take the crown as the furthest flying ICBM and can carry up to 10 nuclear warheads. China may also show off its JL-2 submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) and its hypersonic glide vehicle DL-17. In addition, Lendon thinks the H-6N bomber, DR-8 drone and Sharp Sword drone may make an appearance.
