    Russia has tested a new anti-submarine missile

    MOSCOW, October 28-RIA Novosti.
    Russian sailors from the frigate " AdmiralKasatonov" tested a new anti-submarine missile in theThe Barents sea, the press service of the Northern fleet reported on Wednesday.
    What exactly "product" was tested, it is not specified.
    "The newest frigate of the Northern fleet, Admiral of the fleet Kasatonov, fired an anti-submarine missile at the fleet's combat training grounds in the Barents sea. The shooting was carried out as part of the qualification serial tests of the product and was recognized as a success," the release says.
    One of the nuclear submarines of the Northern fleet was already watching the torpedo that separated from the rocket. An Il-38 anti-submarine aircraft, a Ka-27 helicopter and a torpedo boat of the Kola flotilla also provided fire.

    Odds are small but I do hope that this anti-sub missile is some new product for Uran launchers instead of usual UKSK

    Quite possible actually. Uran launchers are used on stereguchshy and mod Udaloy which both are ASW ships.

    The missile itself can be longer than Uran since the launchers are mounted externally.

    Must be fake since we have no detailed information useful for the CIA.

    One of the nuclear submarines of the Northern fleet was already watching the torpedo that separated from the rocket.

    It clearly states the torpedo separated from the rocket, which means it is a 91ER1/2 type weapon... perhaps using a bigger torpedo, or more likely a bigger rocket to provide better range.

    91ER1/2 are not new weapons so most likely more powerful rocket motor with better range performance...

    Looks like the Egyptian Navy has finally made it through the Turkish Dardanelles Strait which connects the Aegean Sea with the Sea of Marmara, to participate in maneuvers with Russia in the Black Sea.
