Tips

  • Always stay mobile with the Puma. Your fast-reloading gun allows for quick hit-n-run strategies against unwary opponents. sneak behind enemy lines (such as the woods behind O2 Runway on Forward Airfield) and pop out at random intervals to put the pain on enemy tanks, backing off into the woods to repair and avoid enemy AT infantry. The Puma works best with Gunner badge to emphasize its' strengths with a fast reload, turning the Puma into a fast-firing AP spud gun that can sweep away oncoming infantry & tanks with ease.
  • When playing against Soviets, always keep your ears open for PTRD gunfire. Enemies will often attempt to get close to ensure penetrating shots at close range, so be sure to keep the MG42 on standby to deal with them.
  • As with all German IFV , it is highly recommended that you buy a camo for it, to help with ambushes.
  • Always keep your ears open for Anti-Tank gunfire. Enemies will often attempt to get close to ensure penetrating shots at close range, so be sure to keep the MG42 on standby to deal with them.

DOWNSIDES:

  • Thin armor.
  • Unsloped armor.
  • Not great damage per shell.
  • Penetration is good, but not enough to effectively punch through frontal armor of most tanks.
  • Weak ammo rack.

UPSIDES:

  • Fastest reloading cannon.
  • Great DPS when it is able to penetrate Absolutely smokes Tank Destroyers.
  • Very Fast and good on circle of death ( by turning around the enemy tank ).
