These pairs of tubes are equivalents (IDENTICAL):
GU74 = 4CX800,
GS23 = 4CX1600U,
and also GU13 = 813
(but, as with the GU74, the GU13 is conservatively rated
in the russian catalogues for lower power)
The GS35, GU34, GU43, GU84, GU78, GS31 and many
other russian tubes have no direct western equivalents.
I mean that these tubes may have similar electrical parameters
as some western tubes, but have different look, size/dimensions,
base and sockets.
I saw both 4CX1600B and GU84 and can say that are (phisical)
different tubes. Also the GU84 have greater anode power.
The GU 43 and 4CX1000 are also different (both electrical
and as look and size also).
The GU91B is different fromm 4CX1600B, but I have no info
about the 4CX1600A.
