Yu-6 variant?
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.

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)?

Yu-6 variant?
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).

Theo thông tin ban đầu, ngày 18-12, ngư dân Trần Minh Thanh (40 tuổi, người xã An Hải) đi hành nghề giã cào đã phát hiện vật thể lạ này cách bờ biển khoảng 4 hải lý.

Ông Thanh đã kéo vật thể này vào khu vực cù lao Mái Nhà, cột lại, sau đó vào bờ báo cáo cơ quan chức năng.

Sáng 19-12, các lực lượng quân đội, biên phòng, công an đã cùng ngư dân đưa được vật thể lên bờ biển, chờ cơ quan chuyên môn đến xử lý.

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).
