For all the expectations of a North Korean nuke test, the country’s “Day of the sun” celebrations ended up being a relatively subdued affair, with Pyongyang marking the 105th anniversary of its founding leader Kim Il-sung with a military parade in Pyongyang, where it for the first time publicly showcased its submarine-launched ballistic missiles as well as what appears to be a new type of ICBM, even as a U.S. aircraft carrier group steamed towards the region.

Missiles appeared to be the main theme of a giant military parade, with Kim’s grandson, leader Kim Jong Un, taking time to greet the commander of the Strategic Forces, the branch that oversees the missile arsenal. Wearing a black suit and white shirt and a tie and laughing with aides, the country‚Äôs hereditary leader oversaw the festivities on Pyongyang’s main Kim Il Sung Square as he welcomed and addressed thousands of soldiers who took part in the parade honoring his grandfather.

As Reuters observes,, goose-stepping soldiers and marching bands filled the square, next to the Taedonggang River that flows through Pyongyang, in the hazy spring sunshine, followed by tanks, multiple-launch rocket systems and other weapons.
