The AN/PRC-41 is a lightweight, portable VHF/ultra high frequency (UHF)-AM receiver-transmitter which permits manpack, fixed-station, or vehicular operation. The AN/PRC-41 and AN/PRC-41A are identical except that the AN/PRC-41A can provide secure voice (X-mode) operation when used in conjunction with Speech Security Equipment TSEC/KY-38. The X-mode operation is possible due to circuitry modifications made on the AN/PRC-41A model. The Special Cable CX-10831 is required to connect the TSEC/KY-38 to the AN/PRC-41A. The AN/PRC-41 uses RT-695, and the AN/PRC-41A uses RT-695A.

PRC-41 vs PRC-41A

the difference seems to be that they added a crypto port in place of the second audio output.
