Since it was captured by U. Forces, think of all the Pacific island battles... If it could just talk..
It is completely original, dusty and unrestored. It has tape residue showing that at one time it had been sealed up for protection. (see front panel pics) It is missing both end/side panels. The top and back panels are installed and are in excellent condition. At least one vacuum tube is broken and/or missing as may be other parts.
It came out of a U. Military museum that fell victim to the base closures of the 1980s. It's remarkable that it even survived considering its age, WW-II wartime capture, transport back to the U. And the unfortunate closing of the museum responsible for its care. As stated before, it's in need of a really good cleaning.
Japanese laquers are well known to be very good in protecting against corrosion. The silver finish used on its chassis appears to have done a great job. No other components are included. Additional detail pics will be provided as requested.Many thanks to Ben Nock at The Military Wireless Museum of Kidderminster, UK for his generous expert assistance in identifiying this rare piece of Japanese WW-II RF history.
