Pegasus - Small manned submarine featured on the maritime adventure PRIMUS/SYN/1971.

The Pegasus was owned by Carter Primus (Robert Brown), a global underwater troubleshooter based in Nassau. Assisted by his sidekick Charlie Kingman (Will Kuluva) and a pretty assistant Toni Hayden (Eva Renzi), Primus photographed the ocean floor, searched for old sea wrecks, and on occasion even thwarted the plans of madmen like a rogue Soviet submarine commander who wanted to launch missiles on the United States.

Among his arsenal of oceanic equipment was the Pegasus, a small submarine used for exploration and photographic survey of the ocean floor; another portable sub called Shark Hunter, Big Kate, a saucer shaped underwater robot that can dig samples from the ocean bottom or carry artifacts to the surface; the Tegtight, his base of operations; Dagat, his mother ship; and the Orka, his sea sled/patrol boat.
