Considerations involved in the design and detailing of an auxiliary propulsion system for the 105mm howitzer are summarized. The design is based on hydraulic pumps and motors which use the same basic parts as the hydraulic units used on the auxiliary propelled 155mm howitzer. The basis for selecting the engine, pump and hydraulic motor is discussed along with the calculations used to arrive at the final drive ratio, the weapons top speed and range and the magnitude of the hydraulic line losses. All of the remaining items required by the system are treated separately.
