The set comprises a separate receiver and transmitter unit, remote controlled from the operator or pilot's position. Its construction resemble the BC-624 and BC-625 units of the USA transceiver SCR-522 or RAF TR5043. It is believed to be a USSR copy of this World War II set. The USA parent set, however, had both transmitter and receiver units fitted in a single cabinet.
