    There is a short article from janes about the anti-submarine rocket (ASROC)-type torpedo-carrying missile you guys are talking about today.

    PLAN holds 'largest-ever' firepower display in SCS drills

    More significant, however, were the likely first images of an anti-submarine rocket (ASROC)-type torpedo-carrying missile, fired from the vertical launch system of a Type 054A 'Jiangkai II'-class frigate. The official designator of this missile is uncertain, although some sources suggest nomenclature of CY-5 (Chiang Ying, Long Tassel).

    Another apparently new weapon was a lightweight torpedo shown being launched from a surface ship. Most PLAN frigates and destroyers are fitted with triple 324 mm torpedo launch tubes, derived from the Italian Whitehead B-515 launcher. The new torpedo appears to be longer than the PLAN's standard Yu-7 lightweight torpedo, possibly with an extended homing and data processing section. Another notable difference is that the weapon seems to have a shrouded propulsor in place of the contra-rotating propellers on the Yu-7, which may significantly reduce the noise radiated by the torpedo, making detection more difficult.

    Doesn't look like the same the same type of torpedo in the pics. The torpedo captured by the fishing boat look much smaller and shorter with different color.

    You know what... I think Chinese fishing boats should be called the ASW fleet from now on. They seem to have a tendency of capturing navy equipments no matter which country it was originated from. The latest CCTV program Focus's newest episode name is call "Ears under water". It looks like they got another big fish again. :D

    ( Google translate and I rearranged some of the sentence structure.)

    From the article and video, this time the fisherman thought they captured a big fish just off the coast of Hainan island. When they pull in the fishing net, it was not a big fish but something that's looks like a torpedo. Two of the fisherman wanted to throw it back in to the sea because they were worry about explosion. But the boss took pictures of the "torpedo" and send them to the Hainan Provincial NSA Office.

    The security department was immediately sent to the scene, turns out it was not a torpedo, but suspected to be a spy device disguised as a torpedo. In order to confirm the function and purpose of the device , the national security department in conjunction with relevant technical authorities conducted a technical analysis to determine that it is a underwater robot. Having underwater photographic and optical communications, satellite communications and other functions , can be picked up underwater targets or some other things to the satellite via an optical fiber transmission.

    After careful verification, this commonly called submarine AUV LAN controlled underwater robot is not PLAN equipment or manufactured by China. It's probably a new marine technology device by certain country desgined specifically for collecting various types of water environmen and detect trends of PLAN fleet activities , it can achieve close in investigative and intelligence gathering missions. 0001.jpg 0002.jpg 0003.jpg 0004.jpg 0005.jpg 0006.jpg 0001.jpg 0001.jpg 0002.jpg 0003.jpg 0004.jpg 0005.jpg 0006.jpg Although it's not clear what went wrong during the operation and it got captured by the fishing net, but military experts determined that the collected information has been passed back and the reconnaissance mission was complete before being captured.

    The national security sector already aware of such a reconnaissance missions under water. But they need even greater ocean management, marine warning, maritime security, intelligence and early warning mechanisms to establish their own defense against reconnaissance from foreign countries.

    ET52C and other torpedoes on display at DSA 2018.
    ET52C seems to be a new variant of the 52.
