The G-S crystal would be CMC 335 for the military thick crystal or PMC 335 for the thin plastic crystal.

The SUC crystal would be RMN 112 for the Rocket thick crystal and JMN 112 for the thin Jet crystal.

At least that's what the catalogs list for it. They have been wrong. These measure 21.8 X 21.7 mm.
