Yeah I shared this earlier in the ASW thread. However, somewhere buried deep in the comments is my reply, which is that PLAN's subs are probably not going to be used for ASW missions. PLAN does have strong ASW capabilities, but that lies in the Type 56A corvettes and 54A frigates - these carry more sonars than all of the Tico cruisers and most of the Arleigh Burkes.
Aaron Amick is usually quite balanced, although his chat and commenters can be quite ideological and often uninformed. Someone was arguing that Russia's Zircon hypersonic missiles were "not as good as cruise missiles". I don't think it ever occured to them that the Zircon is a cruise missile... or what the difference between ballistic and cruise missiles are.
Americans who are interested on military matters, not all of course, tend to be more conservative than liberal, and therefore many look things from American exceptionalism angle instead of looking things more analytically. Also, let's not forget teenagers who's only education comes from video games and media.
