    There were many different tanks sets used by the teams over the years. You can see equipment and photos sorted by year here:

    Cousteau Museum

    The equipment is from my collection and or photographed by me at the Cousteau Warehouse. I spent a week documenting the equipment housed at the Cousteau Society. There is only one replica pictured:

    DSCN4567

    It was built from molds I made from original parts with input from the person who made the originals. As far as I know here is only one complete original unit still in existence. All other equipment is the real deal including the equipment I am diving with in my avatar.

    I would be happy to answer specific questions as time allows.

    Hello!
    I write from Spain (I do not write well the English language ...) I am looking for tanks of hydrodinamyc that Cousteau in "The Undersea World" used;. I know that there is some collector who has a unit, and I am arranged to buy, or to change. I offer to change: They equipmen RAID (Technisub), original + double tank NEMROD (1950) + vintage triple tank NEMROD.
    I will thank for any information.
    Thanks and best regards!
    Dani

    One of the more popular units had 3 aluminum bottles that were unfortunately made from that "crispy" (6351-T6) alloy.
    (I had to pass on picking one up 'cuz I have to draw the line at collecting only "diveable" vintage gear.)
    The one pictured here is a US Divers UDS-I Diving System, 105 cu. ft at 3000 psi:

    I don't have any 80s, unless you count the twin steel 40s. :wink:

    I am a small collector of objects of Cousteau, and take to long time looking for quadry-tank.
    I believe that in the USA there is a person who has east object....
    I can also offer vintage double tank of Spirotechnique (194?).

    rndboulder,

    I've always loved the silver Cousteau suits, especially the helmet with integrated light. But, I have two questions: (1) when diving with this gear, how is buoyancy controlled without a BCD?, and (2) how do you know how much air you have left without a SPG? Thanks!
