Having read the article the following can be stated:
There are several problems the Chinese will have to overcome. The first is the noise issue. The submarines by their very nature must be quiet.
Noise is a dead giveaway. Even a sub moving around creates some noise. They all have some rhythm or sound that they make and use the back ground to
try to disguise such.
So they want to project air or gas in front of it, then would that not create bubbles in the general area, that would alert any listening or in the
area to its presence. And like shooting ducks or a clay pigeon, one well timed depth charge and it is all over. Then there is another problem, the
gas itself. The water is dense, gasses are lighter, one cannot have gas suspended under the water, it tends to rise. And as some have pointed out
The idea of moving fast under the water has always been there, but the problems may be a bit bigger than what they are anticipating.
