Innovative chassis concept
The chassis incorporates a key PUMA concept approach, the compact, full-length crew compartment for the entire crew, i.e. driver, gunner and commander as well as the infantry squad consisting of six soldiers. This concept minimizes the volume to be protected, thus the crew protection can be maximized within the existing weight constraint.
The contiguous crew compartment is easy to air-condition and offers excellent conditions for optimum, ergonomic crew station design and crew intercommunication.
The entire control and display concept reflects the most advanced technologies. The crew stations for commander and gunner are redundant.
The chassis combines the following innovative elements:
