In 1969, the Spanish Army issued an order for a new truck to replace and homogenize the huge and aged vehicle fleet. The Spanish company ENASA, (Empresa Nacional de Autocamiones S.A.), presented the 4×4 Pegaso 3045 model for 3 tons of cargo, that was declared as “normalized truck” for the Army, Air Force and Navy from 1970 to 1975. However, a heavier truck was needed and that is why the 6×6 Pegaso 3050 model was developed. Finally, the new truck was presented in 1972. The Pegaso 3050 could carry up to 10 tons of cargo by road or 7.5 tons off-road and could tow heavy pieces of artillery. On the front, a winch could be installed for a maximum pulling capacity of 6,000 kg. The truck had forced lubrication by a gear pump to maintain lubrication on very steep slopes. It also had a third differential installed, and a locking system that allowed maneuvering on difficult terrain even skidding some of the wheels. The Pegaso 3050 began to be replaced at the end of the 70s by the new Pegaso 3055 model of similar performances.
