The Telefunken RV12P2000 pentode was the most common vacuum tube manufactured by Nazi Germany. Rated at 580mW output, the RV12P2000 was intended as a high frequency amplifier, but was also implemented as an oscillator, IF amplifier and audio amplifier. The RV12P2000 has an unusual 6-pin radial base, and is mounted inversely in its custom socket.

The RV12P2000 remained popular after the end of World War II. The example pictured here was manufactured around 1947.
