The Puma M26-15 4x4 is an armored personnel carrier (APC) with mine and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) protection. The main users are military, police and security companies during peace-keeping operations.

OTT Armoured Vehicles, a business unit of OTT Technologies (Pty) Ltd, first developed the Puma M26-15 as a cost effective medium mine protected vehicle. The M26-15 is a continuation of the Puma 4x2 mine protected vehicle, which was successfully deployed in Iraq.

The main design parameter was to develop a lower cost and robust mine protected vehicle without compromising crew safety and quality, a vehicle that can be deployed successfully and safely in the harsh environments of Africa and other developing regions. The M26-15 with a crew complement of ten (driver and commander plus eight) is built on the proven Tata 715TC 4x4 driveline making it a robust and easy to maintain mine protected vehicle with a low life cycle cost.
