60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China Military parade


General Information
The People's Republic of China was founded on October 1, 1949. Since then, celebrations of varying scales occur on National Day each year. Military parades were held every year between 1949 and 1959, and were presided over by Chairman Mao Zedong. In September 1960, the Chinese leadership decided that in order to save funds and "be frugal", large-scale ceremonies for National Day will only be held every ten years, with a smaller-scale ceremony every five years. Day celebrations have taken place in 1984 and 1999, at the 35th and 50th Anniversaries, respectively. The military parade of 01 October 2009 will take place on Chang'an Avenue, where the country's leaders will watch the parade. For the anniversary, the Chinese government budgeted roughly $44 million for the military parade, with some budget cuts due to the recent global financial crisis.[13] The parade is expected to display 52 new types of military hardware, including J-10 fighter aircraft, ZTZ99 main battle tank, five new types of nuclear and conventional missiles, Kongjing-200 and Kongjing-2000 early-warning aircraft, an unnamed attack helicopter, and new models of the Type-95 rifle and Type-03 machine gun.
