Which radios in a "normal" Funklenk-StuG III G ?

Hi everybody;
Just recently I drew my CyberHobby Sturmgeschütz III mit Flüssiggas-Antrieb from the stash.
I once got it cheap via an famous online bidding site (the one with multi-coulored letters;-)) and now decided to build it as a StuG III G of Pz.Kp. 316 (Fkl) in Normandy (of course without the gas tanks and with the bolted mantlet). During working through the instructions to mark the changes I came across an old problem of all "new" Dragon Stugs: the radios. As is known Dragon provides the radio equipment for an Abteilungs command vehicle. I googled Pekkas posts concerning radios, but I'm still in doubt which radios to use.
If I got it right the left pannier (C16) gets in every case the FuG 16 (parts E34+E25 in rack E30/29) but whats on the right pannier,especially in Funklenk-StuG?
One option could be to use E26 and E31 in rack E27/E28 to imitate the second receiver, correct?
I'm curious about your opinions.
Best wishes

In the command vehicles they would use the FU5 set which looks very much like the FU16. I do not have this kit so I not know what the parts look like.
