If that was "steady state" I most certainly WOULD agree with you!!

Absolutely! However, these is a very short pulses, possibly on the order of 1 
microsecond or so.

Similar to the 6293 tube, which is a pulse-rated version of the 6146. Typical 
operating conditions for that tube are 3000 volts at 1.5 amps, or 4500 watts, 
while plate dissipation rating for that tube is only about 20 watts.

Under these conditions for that tube, the pulse is only 1 microsecond long 
with a pulse repetition rate of 3000 cps.

There are similar conditions for pulse-rated versions of other popular 
amplifier tubes like the pulse-rated version of the 4-125 (the 4D21), and 
4-250 ( I don't remember this one, maybe the 4D32). As I remember it, these 
are capable of something like 10 KW or more in pulse service.

So, yes, IFF that 2650 Volts at 5.3A were under steady-state conditions, the 
equipment would burn up in a flash.

At 1 microsecond pulses, it just "says", "What was that?" ;-)
