Schützenpanzer Puma IFV: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly. Part 2!

After the old forum thread got abandoned due to the creation of the new forums we’ve decided to come foward and recreate a new thread talking about the Schützenpanzer PUMA and in order to do this i will start with the info about the PUMA.

The PUMA ifv came in the update “Wind of Change” as an 8.3 vehicle rapidly moved to 9.7 and then put at 10.0 the issue about the vehicle came up with the fact that it was missing almost all of its features and was settled as one of the most incomplete vehicles that has made it ingame.

List of current issues

-credits to x_Shini_

hence why i re open this thread to speak about this vehicle and share info with the sole purpose of achieving either a fun talk about it or a common fix for the issues of this vehicle, from now on the thread purpose its to share info and talk with other members that are interested in talking about this vehicle.

The three open MUSS reports have been resolved. I don’t know what the results are so you will need to wait to see what it’s like when it hits production.


Puma S1 SOON xD

Its also missing its 5,56mm Ap(c) ammo, currently iirc it only has Ball and T in game.

Let’s hope they fix its armor

The 360 degree coverage definitely isnt and neither is the vertical elevation.
edit: nvm, its obviously not on the production version yet

he means it got fixed internally, which means devs fixed it in the dev server; it hasnt made it live yet

Yeah, already realized that

i forgot i had this thread, so I’ll post it here, There was a datamine for a missile warning system in the files and together with the datamine of the MUSS together with RAM SEGOL being labeled as “aps” this means there is a possibility that we see a MWS for ground vehicles in the next major update or another update


Or we simple call it SOON

Still waiting for AHEAD, the only thing that would make PUMA worthwhile at 10.0, the summer 2024 update talks about programmable HE reworks so I’m crossing my fingers for that.

hopium for smart self programmed ahead when we lock onto stuff

I’m huffing that hopium as hard as I can, hopefully the summer 2024 updates gives me a good reason to play the game.

I can’t promise anything but I’d expect the changes to come with the next major update as we’ve yet to see them so far.


Can you tell us if there is more stuff about the Puma which got recently (updated)

Need us. We must demand this.

PUMA S1 is not comming yet and probably will come with a damage model rework of the PUMA
