    This right here, I don't know how you ever came to the conclusion that SSN's are suited only for lesser opponents, but I can tell you right here and now that you are very very wrong. It is amazing that some people think that a SSN's value against advance opponents is decreased simply because they are harder to be made to be just as quiet as SSKs. The increased duration/range and speed of a SSN more than makes up for that one particular deficiency. To put even a single SSN between Hawaii and the US main land would instantly put a significant strain on US logistics and planning to ensure that that single boat does not pick off any vulnerable supply ship between those 2 points. This not to mention several.
    The USN has made several well written articles regarding how USSR/Russian SSN can seriously impend any operations in the Atlantic during any war time scenario. The same principle applies here.

    Guys ... stick to the topic which is the Type 095/096 and take this as a warning: NO MORE additional replies on Panama, the US strategy against other subs and so on ! Thread is cleaned.

    Is that so much difficult?? Esp. @AndrewS and @gelgoog ???
