R-388 is the military version and has a slightly different antenna input circuit.
R-388 will have military inspection stamps somewhere (generally) and most are coated with MFP varnish inside. Nameplates are often missing on the R-388, evidently because they were sold by hams who got them via the MARS program and were not supposed to dispose of them.
