Trumpeter 1:35 - Puma 4×4 Wheeled AFV - Plastic model kit #05525
An Italian light-wheeled armoured fighting vehicle, the Puma is produced in two variants: the Puma 4x4 and the Puma 6x6. Started in 1988, the development resulted in five testbed vehicles issued in 1990.
Initially, the Puma was designed to support the Centauro tank destroyer used by the Italian Cavalry Regiments, however nowadays the vehicle serves with the Italian Infantry corps as well. The 4x4 variant is mainly used for reconnaissance. It has room for two soldiers, the gunner and the driver.
In 2013 Italy donated 20 4x4 Puma vehicles to the Libyan National Army for the struggle against terrorism.
