Is de engelse eenheid voor gewicht, de aanduiding voor druk is PSI, "Pounds per square inch"
Waarom bij militaire voertuigen LBS in plaats van PSI wordt geschreven is me niet duidelijk.
1 pound per square inch = 0.0689475729 bar
dus 17 LBS (=PSI) = 1,17 bar
en 24 LBS = 1,65 bar

Hieronder nog een uitleg waarom die gekke Engelsen de afkorting LBS voor pounds gebruiken:

Usually POUND (when it refers to weight) is abbreviated "lb.", although I have sometimes seen "lbs." The Latin word for pound is LIBRA, and that word was once used in English when referring to money. Apparently our word "pound" comes from the Latin word "pondo" which means weight; the Latin expression seems to have been "libra pondo" for "a pound in weight" (as opposed to a pound in money). The Italian monetary unit, the lira, as well as the British pound were coins that were once equivalent to a pound of a precious metal. Both are abbreviated with a fancy capital L (not followed by a period). The story of the terminology can be found in the OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY, and also (under pound, libra and in the appendix) in the AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY.
