Very smart looking and sharp! Should impress any dignitary.

Too American looking. If they really want to scare everyone, they could revert to something similar to the WW2 khaki job with those hats that had the flaps in the back and the officers with those brown jackboots and katana swords. Also, the guard of honour could use Arisaka Type 99 rifles with sword bayonets (the modern German Army honour guard uses WW2 KAR 98 rifles, but minus the bayonets)...
