Type G Pliotron with US Navy Type designation CG-890. The almost identical valve when supplied to the US Army was known as the VT-13.
The CG-890 was initially the CG-886 on a four pin bayonet base. Here the closed cylinder or inverted cup anode has been replaced by an open cylinder and this change improved the valve's performance.
