Antenna, Localizer/Glide Slope, USSR, similar to USAAF AS-27/ARN-5

This artifact resides in our Private Collection, yet we welcome inquiries from restorers, museums, or serious enthusiasts. Please email us with the name of the artifact at Curator@AeroAntique.com.

This is a 1940's vintage aircraft navigational antenna combining the functions of Localizer (aft-pointing U-shaped antenna) and Glideslope (straight, lateral antenna), very similar to AS-27A of the ARN-5 system used in bomber and transport aircraft of the US Army Air Force.  However, on the underside of the base Russian Cyrillic characters are stamped in the metal, evidence of possible USSR origin.
