Soviet IV-15
 

The IV-15 is the Soviet analog to the popular DM160/6977 miniature tuning indicator tube. Like the DM160, the IV-15 does not have a variable length display, only the brightness can be changed. These tubes will illuminate nicely at 9VDC, filament voltage is 1.2 volts. These tubes are great for color-matched colon indicators in retro VFD tube clocks.

This is a fairly large VFD tube, digit height is 14mm and envelope height is 43mm excluding the tube's nipple.

Large Soviet Phosphorescent Neon Bulb
 

Large Soviet-made phosphor coated neon bulbs, unused industrial surplus with shelf wear.

This causes the bulbs to light up with a piercing blue glow instead of the orange discharge common for neon lamps. These bulbs have a bayonet base with a diameter of approximately 14mm.
