Definately a VDG. Big VDG`s like this one have 2 or more field shaping
tanks around it. The full covering tank can be seen on the shelf just
above the ghost, which I thank you for pointing out.
If residual static is not making the technicians hair stand on end,
turning around and spotting that ghost staring down on him sure would!
