   The Pegaso 3055 is a 6x6 development of the Pegaso 6049 and has a nominal on-road payload of 10 tones. It shares many components with the Pegaso 3046 series, including the cab.

   The Pegaso 3055 was produced primarily for the Spanish armed forces with whom it is the standard vehicle in its class. Apart from the basic cargo version, which can carry up to 30 troops in the cargo area, the Pegaso 3055 is used as the carrier vehicle for the Teruel multiple launcher artillery rocket system, and as a tractor truck for towing tank-carrying semi-trailers.

   Other variants include a heavy recovery vehicle with a swiveling crane, refrigerated cold storage vehicles, fuel and water tankers, and van-bodied variants for use as command vehicles and mobile offices. The basic chassis is also used to carry heavy combat engineering equipment such as bridging sections. Some vehicles carry a winch.

   In 1987 the Pegaso 3055 was replaced in production by the Pegaso 7323 which is similar to the earlier model other than the installation of a naturally aspirated 10.52-lirer diesel developing 225 hp, a longer wheelbase (3.7 m +1.48 m), and a revised drive train employing ZF components.

   The Pegaso 7323 has been adopted by the Spanish armed forces and over 1 000 were sold to Morocco. It involves the same variants as the Pegaso 3055 but new versions include an artillery tractor for 155 mm howitzers, a front-line ambulance, a tipper truck and a fire tender.

   Optional equipment for the 3046 and 7323 includes a deep wading kit (up to 1.9 m), a hard-top cab a power take-off on the transfer case, increased capacity or extra fuel tanks, and other sizes of tyres including run-flats.
