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

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