KTZ73 is listed as a prototype for the CV1343. The EVS data says that CV1343 is a modified KTZ73. However, the KTZ73 is shown as having a metallised coating which the above example lacks. It does have a wire from the top of the base shell which would connect to the coating. Note that the shape is the same as the CV1343 / ARP38 above.
