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.Yu-6 variant?

you're new hereFaked how?
now noticed a related tweet: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".
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".Anyone able to read these characters?
