You have to understand the code of duty and honor that rules those who pilot these engines of destruction. Placing such an awesome weapon in the hands of an individual implies a similar gesture of trust

I've started to wonder recently, with the limited weapon mount points on the Puma, what all is kept in the torso sections. Seems like a ton of space for a large engine, or something.

It packed a pair of ER PPC's which is double the punch of the panther.

In CBT its one hell of a 35 tonner, outranging and outgunning its 35 ton IS competition

Quote
The Adder frees up as much weight as possible by using a weight-saving Endo Steel chassis and carrying a lightweight 210 XL Engine, which gives the 'Mech a top speed of 97.2 km/h. The Adder carries six tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor for protection from enemy fire. The effort to save weight has resulted in a 'Mech that dedicates almost half of its weight (some sixteen tons) to pod space.[1][4][5]
 
 Armament
 
The Adder has a Flamer in a fixed mount which cannot be removed from the 'Mech. The Primary configuration adds a basic but powerful arsenal of two ER PPCs which are linked to an advanced Targeting Computer, allowing the Primary configuration of the Adder to strike at long range with deadly accuracy. To help handle the massive heat from the twin ER PPCs, the Adder has an additional double heat sink. Even with the additional double heat sink, the 'Mech must use a volley fire strategy to prevent it from overheating.[1][4][5]

So, the torsos had armour, and an XL engine, and that's about it... Wow...
