Us Wwii Radio Question

OK, clearly I don't know squat about radios, but I am trying to model this accurately.

 

I have Tamiya's 1:35 American M-16 half track, which I am modeling as a WWII subject. One of the crew figures is talking into a headset for a radio. The kit comes with a transciever that just sits on the floor and it seems to match portable transcievers that I found photos of. The reference photos I found show that there should be a line connecting the headset to the transciever and a short antenna attached to the top of the transciever. It looks like a self-contained unit.

 

But then there is a "radio" mounted just behind the driver's compartment. Is this related to the transciever? Should they be connected somehow?

 

Thanks,

Mike
