    Some Vietnamese fishermen hauled in a Chinese torpedo. Does anyone know the designation?

    Should be, it is the only Chinese torp that is officially confirmed to be in widespread use that is of that caliber. My best guess is that this is a dummy version that had floated off course during a past training exercise. Finds like these are often very valuable intel mines. Given that torpedoes are among the hardest munitions to be recovered.

    A torpedo, believed to be Chinese, has washed ashore in the Tuy An district of Vietnam. Via @tuoitrenewsvn https://tuoitre.vn/phat-hien-vat-the-giong-ngu-loi-dat-vao-bo-bien-phu-yen-20181219134304554.htm … #China #torpedo #Vietnam #PLAN #Submarine

    Was it really washed shore or was it retrieved by Vietnamese fishermen from the sea (judging from the ropes and stuff seen on the tail)?

    People are guessing it's either a Yu-6 or a newer Yu-10 (color scheme similar to the one shown in the pic below - which is believed to be the new Yu-10 - but I'm personally not sure).

    Faked how? As in, the thing is faked by the Vietnmaese? I don't think so. Video seems informative but too bad I can't understand anything except possible mentioning of "China".

    接通 at the top means "Connect" and 断开 below means "disconnect". Worth noting these are 简体中文 characters

    Okay... not sure what you meant there but okay.

    Were you asking also for yourself? Under the tweet people are giving all kinds of answers but they converge to resemble "On" and "Off".

    I'm still eager to hear what model this is. Would be a pretty big screw-up if it is indeed the Yu-10 as rumored (though increasingly unlikely).
