It's my understanding that from a 1st order analysis (ignoring subtleties
like what plate voltage they are being run at, any differences in
efficiencies between the tube types, output network design, etc, etc.), the
plate efficiencies would theoretically be the same between a
screen-modulated stage and a class AB linear amplifier stage amplifying an
AM signal, since they are both essentially "efficiency modulation"
