Because 095 nuke attack subs improved noise reduction, and high speed that can keep up with US carriers, it can sneak into US carrier strike zone and launch attacks. If 4 of them, it will form 360 degree surprise attack.

Therefore US military experts are highly concerned about China attack subs 095.

But not so concerned about China big destroyer 055. They can detect that ship far distance and launch air fighters to strike on it.

The US defense department call Type 055 a “cruiser”, which, by the US definition, is the largest and most powerful surface combatant after an aircraft carrier.

The 055 has a 112-cell VLS to fire HHQ-9 surface-to-air missiles, YJ-18 anti-ship cruise missiles, CJ-10 land-attack cruise missiles and missile-launched anti-submarine torpedoes...

It also has a 130mm dual-purpose naval gun and close-in weapon system and carries two anti-submarine helicopters.

The 055 could also serve as a platform for developing next-generation weapons such as high-energy laser equipment or rail guns...
   Analysts said they believe Type 055 surpasses the Korean and Japanese vessels in size, radar system performance, missile capacity and multi functionality.

And only 095 have enough fire power to sink entire US carrier group
