The ECC31 is a medium μ double triode with a common cathode. The CV1285 (formerly NR73) was based on the ECC31. The 6N7G has the same base connections but a much higher anode current rating and was designed for use as a Quiescent Push-Pull output stage.
The two triode unit anodes are parallel to one another.

The classic envelope is 45 mm in diameter, and excluding the IO base pins is 86 mm tall.
