I'm not sure it did. The list of available inserts (in the Indicator Panel
Assembly drawings, available in the RF11 prints, pp. 186-190) doesn't list an
RC11 insert, and that list does include the RF11, which is a later controller
than the RC11.

I tried looking online for RC11 engineering drawings, to see if it included
an indicator panel connector (the way the RK11-C does), but I could not find
_anything_ substantial about the RC11 online.

Yeah, I'd come to that conclusion...

Well, I'm not sure. Most PDP-10 gear had rows of 36 lights, which is the full
width of these 19" indicator panels (i.e. every light in a row - like the top
row of the RP11 panel, see the page for an image), and I don't see that in
this one. But I suppose I should try and round up images of 19" x 5-1/4"
PDP-10 panels, too (ISTR that there are a few).
