    They're not even subtle doing their intended purpose.

    Well, are USN spy planes particularly subtle buzzing the Chinese coastline?

    I wonder if a high speed intelligence ship would be useful.

    The USN ships that China needs to shadow could theoretically just dash away with Flank speed.

    From what a F18 super hornet ?

    But these type of eavesdropping missions are really important, collecting electronic emissions from American carrier strike groups will be beneficial in hunting them down

    USN routinely practice “zero” emissions while in transit by switching off anything that can be switched off but low level of emissions can be detected if your close enough and that Chinese ship is close enough

    The sea is a open space and anyone can pass, freedom of navigation does not only apply to western country’s

    My thoughts exactly. PLAAF currently does not have the capability to fly near the Con-US but the PLAN can shadow the US Navy.

    It looks to me that the Type 815 "855" is actually trying to join in with the ship formation.
