Hi all,

Just hunting around on forums again, as you do, and I stumbled across this:

It's some form of military Model M, although I really don't know what the connector is on the end of it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

I saw it too on mechmarket, I think it isnt really that special, just a official modified Model M. I also didnt recognize the plug, but I think it will probably speak PS2.

Myoth is on here as well, so maybe he can chime in with respect to the protocol.

As hypkx says, it's probably a PS/2 board given the otherwise bog-standard AZERTY layout. If it's Set 1 or 3, there's converters, assuming the worst case of a never-before-seen custom protocol, the controller is always replaceable.

What I find peculiar is that the inside of the case also looks painted, especially near the controller, could this be some kind of EMI, TEMPEST-style shielding going on?
