The 12K7GT variable-mu screened pentode was designed in the 1940's for intermediate frequency amplifiers in superhet receivers where the stage gain was controlled by the application of negative bias on the grid. That bias or AGC voltage was derived from the received signal by rectification. It is high impedance valve allowing for a high Q in the tuned anode circuit.

The wide glass tube envelope is 28 mm in diameter and, excluding the IO base pins, is 67 mm tall.
