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
Yeah, I mean those Nimitz and Ticos can dash with 30+ knots while the 815 can only do 20 knots maximum.
Would be pretty good if China could use a DDG hull with the same propulsion to build a purpose made fast intelligence ship that can keep up with any enemy group. Sailing within a few miles, trying to gain encrypted datalink emissions.
