Does anyone remember that tweet that alleges a Type 054A caused a Virginia class submarine to surface?

Impossible to conclude but here's two pieces of literature on this event.

Do you have any insight into this?

I find it hard to believe that a single Type 054A could convincingly detect and track Virginias from any useful range.

It would have to be a combination of Y-8/9 ASW aircraft and whatever else is used by PLAN to do this job. If it were that easy, the Americans would be in a rush to replace or improve their SSNs?

No additional insight. Article mentioned all the possibilities.
