FF-26 had wooden case of the same shape and size as "Grosser
Feldfernsprecher 17", one of 1917 German field telephone models. The
obvious difference with 1917 models was in handset support design. In working
position, the FF-26 handset support was protruding out of the telephone box
while in transit the handset and its support both went inside the box.
