This "Jupiter-M" (ЮПИТЕР-M) was the second version of the original "Jupiter" (ЮПИТЕР) manufactured in 1964. The cabinet colors here are orange and tan. A red and white cabinet version is also shown below. While the Jupiter-M was also exported to East Bloc and Western countries, the two examples shown here were made for the domestic market (USSR). Other color combinations included gray/white, green/black and blue/white. From its plentiful appearances on Russian and Ukrainian auction sites and eBay Germany as well, it's pretty safe to say that the Jupiter-M was produced in large numbers.
