History[edit | edit source]

After an evaluation of several different prototypes to improve the BMP-1, the Polish military eventually decided on what would become the BWP-1M Puma. One of a few different iterations in the Puma line, this prototype Armored Fighting Vehicle uses the standard BMP-1 turret with upgrades to various pieces of equipment.
