I don't think they exist.  As I remember, they were planning on TRYING to 
make them but were never successful. Svetlana doesn't exist as we knew it 
when George Badger and someone else (I don't remember his name... Bob 
Alprin?) ran it many years ago. They were also planning on making 3-500s 
too. That never happened. Someone was labeling Chinese made tubes and 
selling them under the Pride name.

I see some "Svetlana" tubes on Ebay and RF parts says they carry them but 
I'm not sure of their origin. I remember someone saying that the Svetlana 
4CX800 (GU-74) is no longer made either.
