The Standard Mark V Artillery Gun, or SMV, is the standard towed artillery of the Imperial Legion of the Enlightened Empire of Tarsas. The gun was ordered in 1975 to replace the old H32 Standard Towed Gun. It is currently featured on the SPG-22 Regulus as the main armament.
- Mark I - Initial production variant first delivered in the summer of 1981. Several issues with the gun mount arose such as the hydraulic system being meant for less weight than it had to support. This caused parts to wear out faster. Only 20 produced.
- Mark II - Resolved all problems with the Mark I and added an increased capability auxiliary power unit.
- Mark III - Decreased weight through the use of composites in certain areas of the gun.
- Mark IV - Current production variant featuring a faster deployment system. Introduced in 1995.
