Puma – Infantry Fighting Vehicle
Jointly produced by Rheinmetall and Krauss-Maffei Wegmann, the top-performing Puma infantry fighting vehicle is the most advanced system of its kind anywhere. Besides excellent modular protection, the Puma possesses a unique capacity for scalable lethality and the ability to take part in sophisticated network-enabled operations. This innovative IFV offers space for a nine-man crew and can be airlifted into remote areas of operation in the A400M military transport plane, fully meeting the requirement for maximum tactical and strategic mobility.
System Panzergrenadier will substantially enhance the fighting strength and combat effectiveness of the VJTF 2023. Equipped with System Panzergrenadier, this formation will, for the first time in Germany, bring together a digitized vehicle platform – the enhanced VJTF version of the Puma infantry fighting vehicle – and a soldier system equipped for digital radio communication.
