China says type 095 nuclear submarine is better than US submarines

Type 095 Submarine
Type 095 Submarine

The following is a translation from Chinese media:

According to sina.com.cn, China will adopt the following six new technologies in its type 095 attack nuclear submarines: new water injection propulsion, super strong steel, mixed single and double-hull structure, new comprehensive vibration reduction floating raft and vertical launch tube for cruise missile.

The website says that the new submarine has to have an underwater speed not less than 33 knots, silent cruise speed not less than 18 knots, and maximum submerging depth not less than 600 metres.

That means the submarine is better than the US Virginia-class and comparable to the US Seawolf-class attack nuclear submarine.
