    The guy who originally did the pictures tried to compare it to a known Y-7 MPA model, but I think the actual plane was introduced as MA-600 on CCTV.
    Agree! If you compare the model and the real thing carefully, you'll find that the nose section of the two things are different.

    I don't think the Chinese have a torpedo that is suitable and modern enough that can be airdropped from the heights required off a MPA... the only one that is perhaps suitable is the Yu-6, but that's a fairly dated torpedo already.

    YU-6 is actually a fairly new torpedo, we have never seen it in service until one to two years ago.

    Yu-7 is also fairly new. Right about the same time as the Yu-6 or after.

    The Yu-7 is based off the old Mk46 Mod 1, which is long out of production in the West. The USN and NATO have moved onto the the Mk46 Mod 5, while the USN had also adopted the Mk50 and the Mk54. European Navies are slowly making the MU90 a standard as well.

    considering that China got Mk 46 mod 2 in the early 90s, I'd say that's the minimum standard for Yu-7. Look, in reality with all of their updates, Yu-7 is probably at the level of Mk46 mod 5.

    "Based" does not mean anything. At best, it would be an analog and can never be taken literally. Far more important are the specifications and new requirements that would been conceived and then later added to the design. Since the introduction of the torpedo is fairly late, we can assume it would have all the updates and the latest requirements in mind.

    They could use the CY-1 anti-submarine missile with c-802 anti-ship missiles and Ty-90
