Default North Korea 75th Anniversary Parade

That is, 75th of the North Korean Communist Party's Founding on 10 OCT 2020.

A lot of new toys showed up. This will have lots of photos.

Most of them are by Nathan Chatterton on a Facebook group taken from a video stream.

Some new small arms

Helicial magazines, previously seen on Kim's bodyguards



Now seem to have migrated to the normal infantry:



There's also a new bullpup thing:


Bullpup style rifle

New Tank




A new tank showed up.

Another appearance of 152mm SPH

The M2018 152mm SPH showed up again:



It appeared previously in a 2018 parade (hence the M2018 designation)



More Rockets

KN-09

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KN-09_(MRL)

They've introduced a 300mm GMLRS system.




KN-25:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KN-25

They've introduced a 600mm SRBM system with a 200+ mile range and put it on things


This is a 4 round launcher on trucks


This is a 5 round launcher on trucks.


This is a 6 round launcher on a tracked platform similar to our own MRLS.

They've also modernized slightly older rocket artillery:


They've placed the older 240mm M1990 MRLS on a newer chassis.

More AFVs

They've produced a MRAP-like vehicle:



They seem to have produced a new (M2018ish) 6x6 APC with clear BTR-40/60/70 etc lineage; and are using it to mount a new ATGM system that has clear similarities to the IsraelI SPIKE ATGM.




And like everyone else, they've gone into heavy 8x8 Wheeled APCs:



This is a tenatively designated M2018 8x8 APC with a KORNET/Bul'sae ATGM launcher.

They've even attempted to make a Stryker AGS clone, albeit with what seems to be a 122mm D-30 cannon:



MiG-29 continues in service






Most of the air force including MiG-23 and Su-25 have been repainted to that color scheme.

Some more photos of the tentatively designated M2020 MBT:





There also appears to be another Indigenously developed North Korean MBT. It first appeared in a 2010 parade, and until something official comes up, most people are calling it the Songun Ho.

A rarity for NK Armor; someone captured a nice top angle of the Songun Ho:



Speculation is that it is derived from the earlier Pokpung-ho, with a wider cast turret with a larger rear bustle.

Something about the way they look, they look fake. I don't know if it is the paint job or something.

They both look like copies of the originals, to me at least.

They look like they are straight off the production line pristine with no gear attached like a shovel or spare track link etc
