I have the A10a kit & if the radio in this kit is the same as the one in this review it is incorrect! The radio is a N set o. 19 radio set which needs 2 aerials one 2ft (60cm) long & one 4ft (120cm) long; apart from this these radios were not fitted during the life of these tanks TMK as they had not been issued. there is a choice of two radios either a No. 9 set, as fitted to the Morris armoured cars, or the number 11 set as fitted to early tanks in the Desert; either radio only used one aerial. This was fitted to the rear of the turret & had a unit that allowed the aerial to be laid horizontally as they were not whip aerials.
