The British TYPEX machine was an offshoot of the commercial Enigma and
purchased by the  British for study in the 1920's. It was a 5-rotor machine with the two initial rotors being stators, serving the purpose of the German Enigma's plugboard. [Ref: Deavours p.144]

Typex machine was similar to the Sigaba but was designed specifically to allow joint communications at highly secure levels between the British and the Americans during WW II. This Typex machine is on display at the National Cryptologic Museum. (Photo by Jerry Proc)
