notes"The Singaporean Light Weight Howitzer is a 155-mm 39 caliber towed howitzer. It is commonly referred to as Pegasus. Introduced in 2005, Pegasus weighs approximately 5.4 tons and is transportable by a CH-47 helicopter or it can be transported by a C-130 Hercules aircraft. It has a recoil management design that reduces the recoil by approximately one third. The Pegasus uses a a firing platform base rather than a split trail carriage to decrease the times for emplacement and displacement. Pegasus has the ability to self-traverse short distances (when minor firing position changes are required) at a maximum speed of 12 km/h via an onboard diesel engine The Pegasus is equipped with an onboard Lombardini 9LD625-2 air cooled diesel engine auxiliary power unit (APU) delivering a power output of 21kW. The APU provides power for self traverse over short distances and an ammunition loading system that facilitates automatic loading and reduces crew fatigue."
