The Puma G-12 class MBT is a later industrial era TL-6 Armored Fighting Vehicle.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Enlightened 3.1T class tracked 12 cm MBT, TL-6: The vehicle's sloped hard steel armor sheaths the chassis and turret to levels of protection to protect versus direct fire, bullets and shell fragments. This design is sealed with over pressure for the crew in protected forces roles. An improved internal combustion power plant and transmission are linked to a large tracked suspension with low ground pressure to avoid becoming bogged down in sand, snow, mud or soft soils. The coaxial LMG can help deal with encroaching infantry, the pintel mounted HMG can help versus air craft and light armor. The main gun is powerful and can engage in direct fire and its primary mission of destroying enemy armored vehicles. It is stabilized to fire effectively on the move. The vehicle is restricted in its fuel consumption and therefore its operational range of 142km by roads and 85km cross country.

The vehicle has a crew of four: driver, gunner, loader, and commander.
