We present an X-ray, radio and optical study of the cluster A 2717. The central D galaxy is associated with aWide- Angled-Tailed (WAT) radio source. A Rosat PSPC observation of the cluster shows that the cluster has a well constrained temperature of 1.9+0.3 −0.2 × 107 K. The pressure of the intracluster medium was found to be comparable to the mininum pressure of the radio source suggesting that the tails may in fact be in equipartition with the surrounding hot gas.
