former submariner here....i was a sonar tech too....

this is bull sh1t....

theres no way to defeat the physics underwater like this. no way they would be able to produce the force to go subsonic AND be silent....theres too many moving parts....the buzzing from that engine would sound like a muffled sports bike....oh and the cavitation at the screw (prop) would be outrageous as well.....

i'd love to see this....but i dont think it could be done.....

not to mention....what purpose would a sub this fast even serve? it would be going too fast to listen for other ships (the entire purpose of subs)....and thermonuclear weapons can already be fired from mainland china to the us anyway....

i see no point for it

the ocean is huge breh...

where do you even post up to shoot down missiles or planes?

not to mention....air craft carriers can already do that....

also...despite what Red October showed....subs dont really use radar...
it doesnt work under water....thats why they have sonar....radar would only work at periscope depth (60ft)...at that depth it might as well be a surface ship...which again defeats to purpose of a sub
Bruh came thru wit the knowledge…

Airplanes/missles could get shot out the sky easily...if a country can conquer the ocean as such the could wreck havoc in a war, can our satellites in drones shot shyt in the water

Chinese scientists close in on laser propulsion for superfast, silent submarines
Breakthrough overcomes decades-old problem of how to harness the technology to propel underwater vessels, according to paper
Design can produce almost as much thrust as a commercial jet engine, using optical fibres that coat the submarine

Scientists developing China’s next-generation nuclear submarine technology say they have found a way to significantly improve the efficiency of the laser propellers that could one day drive the underwater vessels.
The researchers said the new technology can produce nearly 70,000 newtons of thrust – almost the force of a commercial jet engine – using 2 megawatts of laser power emitted through the submarine’s coating of optical fibres, each thinner than a human hair – an efficiency previously thought impossible to achieve.

The laser pulses not only generate thrust but also vaporise seawater, creating bubbles all over the submarine’s surface in a phenomenon known as “supercavitation” which can significantly reduce water resistance.
Theoretically, the development could allow a submarine to travel faster than the speed of sound without producing the mechanical noise vibration that usually gives away its location, according to the researchers.
