The Puma M36 Mine Protected Vehicles have been in operational service since 2014 when the first of a total of one-hundred and fifteen vehicles were delivered to four Troop Contributing Countries in Mali. Subsequently another sixty PLUS were delivered to Peace Keeping entities for deployment in Mali and Somalia. Despite various lED and direct fire attacks no known serious injuries were inflicted to date.

The operational deployment in these harsh and dangerous environments offered OTT Technologies the opportunity to continuously improve the reliability and functionality through various configuration upgrades, the latest being the M36 Mk 6 range.

The Puma M36 Mk 6 Mine Protected Vehicle series has, through its evolutionary and improving lineage a combat proven deployment history since 2014 tempered by the harsh conditions of Peace Keeping Operations in Mali and Somalia. The s with independent suspension offers exceptional road and off-road mobility.

Each of the two Puma M36 Mk 6 lines offers a complete family of vehicles comprising tactical, support and logistic vehicles.

The high mobility of the Puma M36 Mk 6C is still further enhanced by using Independent Suspension on the M36 Mk 6C-2 for those users who require higher and more comfortable mobility over uneven terrain. With a fording depth of 1200mm the Puma M36 Mk 6C and Mk 6C-2 can take its crews to otherwise inaccessible destinations to bring peace and hope to the victims of terrorism and aggression.

An added advantage of using the above drive lines is the availability of "soft skin" logistic vehicles with the same automotive components as the corresponding mine protected vehicle thus simplifying logistic and technical support.
