looking at wiki yesterday came across a radio bc348 which was used in large aircrafts b17, b-24, b25 ,c-47, b29 etc which ended up being copied by the russians as yc-9
so wondering what other allied land or aircraft based radios did the russians copy?

Nearly everything produced for land use was provided to the USSR. These were the days before encription. I have seen war time produced No19 sets that had the face plates in both Chinese and russian characters that were meant to be snt via lend lease. They were overpruduction and kept in stores and then issued out post war to Canadian and british troops!
