What would you call the process of when two states confront each other and show their military power but they are not at war (South Korea and North Korea) or just when a state is displaying its firepower? Could I literary say they're clanging military power?

Would it make sense to say "clang military power"?
Could I say that there has been a clang of miltary power?
No. "Clang" is rarely used - and then only in the context of bells ringing.
You might consider saying a "clash" of military power; but this implies more than just posturing...
What about "parading" their military power?
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
