The US know how to deal with those kilo subs, but trust me on this, I am pretty dammed sure that the chinese know how to deal with a Los Angeles Class Sub.
If you aren't afraid of the Diesel Class or AIP type subs why train against them?
PS. From the looks of it, the US Navy have had problems with nations diesel subs seems interesting.

The US Navy does not have "problems" with DE boats.
Fore decades, the US Sub fleet was calibrated to fight fast Soviet nuke boats that were easy to track.
The US Sub fleet now is in the process of "recalibrating" for warfare against quieter (and slower, less well armed, and shorter-legged) DE boats to be used in littoral situations.

As the old saying goes "Better to stay quiet and be thought an idiot than to open ones mouth and prove it"
Now I am not saying you are an idiot as I most surely do not think that but I am sure you get my meaning.
