Hi guys,

I found this communications headset setup in an old militaria collection I had stored away from when I was a kid. Can anyone help me with any info like branch of service, manufacture period, what this was actually used for (i.e. ground radio set, helicopter comm etc.) or any other info would be appreciated. I can resize and attach other pics I have including some numbers on certain pieces of the setup.

Thanks for any help.

I may be wrong but I think it is for an Armored Fighting Vehicle,like a Bradley or other type like an APC?

M577 command track. M113 with raised troop section for standing inside. Generator above driver and engine, forget the radio mdl. inside, used for battalion command IIRC.
