Start AL304V  
Written by Accutron on 2017-03-25  

The AL304V is a Soviet-manufactured analogue of the Monsanto MAN3, produced at the Start plant in Dalmatovo, Russia. While the AL304V and MAN3 share a similar outward construction style and 10-pin flat pack outline, the AL304V is a green device, built from eight discrete dies rather than using a single monolithic die for all segments. The package of the AL304V is a nearly transparent pale green plastic, and the ground plate is stamped to match the outline of the dies, giving the digit the appearance of floating within the device.
