Japan’s Soryu-class Sub Shocked by China’s Anti-sub CapabilitiesPosted: July 30, 2016
According to Japanese media, a Japanese Soryu-class submarine had stealthily tracked a Chinese fleet that was carrying out a naval drill for 14 days. It had switched off its radio and active sonar to avoid being detected by the Chinese fleet and believed that it had not been detected as the fleet had just disregarded it.
However, when it surfaced to show that it had no enmity, it was amazed to find quite a few float sonars nearby and a Chinese Z-9C helicopter flying around it.
Soryu-class is one of the best conventional submarines very difficult to detect, but Chinese navy has no difficulty to detect it.
