USS Pegasus (PHM-1) was the lead ship of her class of hydrofoils operated by the U.S. Navy. Pegasus class vessels were designed for high speed and mobility, and carried a powerful (for their size) armament.
Named for the constellation, Pegasus was originally intended to be named Delphinus, but during development and discussion it began being nicknamed 'dull-penis', so the name was dropped. In service it earned the nickname 'pegasorous'. As this vessel was constructed several years before the rest-of-class, there are some minor differences, such as the fire-control system.
