Gotta be careful about voltage ratings.  Are you talking connector 
design maximum, dielectric breakdown, or what?  And, RMS vs peak vs DC.

And, what kind of system is that in (e.g. matched, or with some stated 
VSWR)  (after all, the MIL-C-39012 is specd at 1:1.3 VSWR (although most 
are much better)

the Amphenol corrugated N has a lower RMS voltage (707) compared to the 
regular (1500V), but does have a peak power (10kW) and average power 
(600W) spec.
