that's one of the characteristics that we're not. everything that is shown on NDP is there for a reason, same goes to those that aren't shown. If it weren't second hand german army tanks, we may well choose not to annouce this purchase even.
If you have read MM Lee's memoirs, they have a mobile column when the bought the AMX Tank to show off/warn our neighbours...
We always have a history of showing off what we announce when we get it... The moment the new F-15SG comes... Same thing also... NDP fly past would show them to haolian also too...
Our NDP both marching contingent and mobile column not impressive enuff.
Look at those Soviet one, I think their one contingent more than all our guard-of-honour, some more high kick stylo. Their missiles and tanks also quite impressive, the whole thing designed to show off their power one.

read para 5 under Fact Sheet. I don't know whether to laugh loudly or to loud hysterically
Our neighbours don't need to spend too much time/effort/money to recce us lah, just read Jane's can oredi
