#44582 Corsair Serial Number Mystery

Posted by R Leonard on 13 January 2015 - 01:06 AM

7083 is not even close to any F4U bureau number.  7083 puts you firmly in the Consolidated PB2Y-3 series.

 

That being said, the combination "7083 FT228A" refers to a standard mount fixture for the AN/ARC command radio set; specifically, for a four-transmitter remote contro.  The AN/ARC-5 was the standard wartime USN/USMC aircraft radio.  See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AN/ARC-5
