BEIJING: Chinese military has unveiled a range of new weapons, including long-range missiles, amid calls by its top officials to be combat-ready following a landmark verdict by an UN-backed tribunal+ that struck down China's "historical rights" in the South China Sea.
The Southern Theatre Command of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) which looks after the South China Sea front has unveiled a series of new weapons for sea and air combat during a visit by top military officers.
The weapons were shown on state television in the wake of a landmark international tribunal rejecting Beijing's claims to almost all of the South China Sea and upheld the claim of the Philippines+ .
Military experts said the rare public display was intended to show that the newly formed Southern Theatre Command, was well- prepared for any potential military confrontation with the US, Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported on Friday.

You must be a Chinese beggar.
india remain poor not because of US, China or Russia, but because of our corrupt and ineffective politicians and officials. Things are changing now slowly
India remain and will remain poor because we breed like rabbits and blame everything to the politicians....
At least I have stopped buying chinese products. I firmly believe that many more Indians would do so. China''s trade should suffer.
Everyone now a days have weapons, if China press a button other countries also will follow. Finally nobody will be left alive.

China is flexing its muscles but the rest of the world,except China''s sycophant Pakistan, seems to be least bothered!
If there is any armed conflict it''s not between the US & China but between the whole world and China.
CHINA HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO WITHDRAW FROM THE SOUTH CHINA SEA AND ABIDE BY THE UN TRIBUNAL JUDGEMENT! JAI HIND!

varieties of noodles and momos.
China getting too much arrogant. Needs a lesson to be taught not by war but put economic and travel sanctions on China. Within 6 months it will be on its knees.
How much weapons they display they don''t have a technology that they cannot compete with US in the international level and moreover it is a Chinese product it won''t last long
China is really stupid now
