The AN/PRC-77 "Army/Navy, Portable, Radio, Communication" is a portable, battery-powered VHF-FM transceiver. 

Description: The PRC-77 is used for short-range voice communication.

The AN/PRC-77 radio was put into service by the US military in 1968 during the Vietnam War as the successor to the PRC-25.

It differs from its predecessor mainly in that its final power amplifier stage consists of solid-state components (fully transistorized) rather than vacuum tubes.

The PRC-77 can also be used with voice encryption devices.

These include the TSEC/KY-38 NESTOR equipment used in Vietnam and the later KY-57 VINSON COMSEC equipment.
