Possibly, although I would be hesitant to operate vintage submarines dating back to 1944 at anywhere near their diving or maneuvering limits in the course of such training for mean time before failure engineering reasons if anything.

When the time comes for the Republic of Chinese to choose between fight or flight against a possible invasion, these improved Gato-class submarines maintained in perfect operating condition but rendered incapable of actually firing against enemy targets seem optimized for the latter in various ways.

 
Submarine hulls have a limited life, my guess is this boats don't go very deep. US Fleet boats weren't particularly silent or fast, if I had to flee, i'd rather go by plane.

I would tend to agree, but after the balloon goes up, fleeing by air may be complicated by loss of Republic of Chinese control of its airspace. These 2 boats with a range of 16,000 miles give their senior military leadership and their families multiple fleeing options.

Priorities and all that.
