The first parade of the Korean People’s Army took place on February 8, Juche 37 (1948) which marked the birth of the revolutionary regular army.
The KPA safeguarded the destiny of the country and the nation in the Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953) against the invasion of the allied imperialist forces.
In 1953, the KPA held a parade in honour of the victory in the war, when the venue of the military parade was full of the heroic spirit of the soldiers who had smashed the aggressors attempting to violate the independence and stability of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The military parade of the revolutionary armed forces was followed by similar ones decade after decade, century after century.
They demonstrated the invincible might and heroic spirit of the Juche-type armed forces that firmly defended the revolutionary gains by smashing the continuous aggression moves of the hostile forces in every step and ensured socialist construction reliably.
A military parade was held with splendour at Kim Il Sung Square at 00:00 on October 10, Juche 109 (2020) to celebrate the 75th founding anniversary of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
Resounding across the square were the footsteps of columns of the majestic elite troops such as those from the corps standing guard over the frontline posts, snipers and light infantrymen that have grown to be special operations forces capable of successfully carrying out combat tasks in any operational spaces on land, and in the sea and the air.
The columns of mechanized units, artillery forces and advanced weapons passed the square, showing off the infinite might of justice and military potentials of the country.
The huge nuclear strategic forces on which the authority and security of the great State and people hinge passed the square showing that a young army, which had had columns of machine guns mounted on the carriages to show instead of mechanized columns, has grown up into an invincible army with the ultra-modern strategic weapon systems today.
The dignified figures of the paraders full of pride in being victors and the magnificent appearances of passing Juche-type weapons indicative of the dignity and spirit of the nation, showed vividly that the victory of the Juche revolution is certain and that no challenging forces could escape from downfall, as long as the KPA, the army of the WPK with the strongest military muscle in the world, exists.
The military parade which took place last month in celebration of the Eighth Congress of the WPK demonstrated again the majestic appearance of the KPA which would continue to guarantee the new, historic advance of the WPK by dint of the strongest military muscle in the world.
