You mean the same way a dutch diesel sub managed to 'sink' half of a US Navy CTF in 1990?[0]

The US navy isn't as unbeatable as some people think.

Why would the US navy allow a news article about what it's warships can't detect?

I propose they can detect them just fine, but don't want to reveal they have the ability to do so.

Clickbait title, it was a battle simulation.

I don't think anyone read that title and thought a Swedish submarine actually sank an aircraft carrier 2 years ago and we've only just heard about it...
