Description

"This light VZ tank sacrifices armor for good firepower and a lighter weight, making it easier to transport." —Stockpile caption.

The Puma is primarily designed as a reconnaissance tank. Because of this, it is not heavily armed or armored. It is however very speedy and maneuverable compared to other tanks. It is the smallest tank in the game, and is especially common during the start of the game. Eventually the Venezuelans move up a level and start using the Jaguar MBT more often, its bigger and meaner brother.
The Puma is armed with a 90mm gun, a .50 caliber coaxial and a 12.7mm (.50 caliber) DShK Machine Gun on top of the turret with a 360º turning radius. As stated above, easy to find early on (although it becomes rarer as the VZ generally replace it with the Jaguar later on) and can be purchased from the Pirates for $75k when on friendly terms.

The Puma is based on the Venezuelan-produced, license-built version of the British FV-101 Scorpion recon tank. -Mercs Wiki.
