Inner Sphere Mechwarrior nicknamed this 'Mech the Puma as a tribute to it's ferocity. Though light and fast enough for scouting missions, the Puma can stand up to many Inner Sphere medium 'mechs. It packs exceptional firepower for a light 'mech and many Mechwarrior in the Successor States got a nasty surprise the first time they faced it in battle.


Alternate Configuration 'A' turns the Puma into a fire-support 'mech. The double LRM-20 racks on the arms can deliver enormous damage from afar, softening up the enemy for the Puma's Starmates. To deal with enemies that get too close, this design mounts a small pulse laser in each of the right and left torsos.


The Puma sees widespread use among all the Clans, though it rarely serves as a reconnaissance 'mech. Clan Wolf makes greater use of the Puma than other Clans do, often assigning it to scouting missions. As a fire-support 'mech, it serves with Stars of all compositions.
