SHOWCASE 7

Field Telephones of WW II

  • EE-8 Demo - US-made EE-8-A field telephone taken out of its leather bag to demonstrate special modifications made before supplying the telephones to the Red Army.

To Showcase To the Cell

The most important of those modifications were add-on parts which made possible to use the USSR domestic 2C (2S) dry batteries as replacement to the standard BA-30 batteries ("D" cells). 

Our Demo shows a pair of 2C batteries connected as well as a pair of BA-30 batteries installed. In real field operation either a pair of 2C or a pair of BA-30 batteries would be used. 

To accommodate a pair of 2C batteries, the leather bag of EE-8 telephones had to be extended by about 1 1/2" (WHD = 230 х 250 х 90 mm)

Other modifications included Cyrillic designations on the telephones and schematics and instruction manuals in Russian language.
