Hi, Quick question for the tubes experts, would a tube marked as Wehrmacht be the same spec as the "retail" version? Is there any real significance of the Wehrmacht marking? Thx!

I imagine the Wehrmacht version would have been carefully tested to ensure reliability. Failure while fighting a tank battle in North Africa could mean a death sentence to whoever was responsible !

BTW, I have a bunch of Siemens Sikatrop caps produced for the Nazi German army that still measures perfectly after they have been in use for 70+ years. I guess Hitler intended for his empire to last.
