Polaris Industries Inc. has announced that it has been awarded a contract with the Germany Army to provide MV850 ultra-light tactical vehicles to its forces.
Polaris built the MV850 platform specifically for the U.S. military and allied forces. Armies can transport personnel and gear through extreme off-road terrain using the vehicles. The platform includes a 600-pound capacity metal rack system, 11.75-gallon fuel capacity, blackout lighting with IR light capability and an optional litter mount.
“Defense forces around the world are seeking Polaris Defense Military vehicles to take advantage of our ability to make modifications to our commercial off-the-shelf technology (COTS), insert customer requirements and quickly deliver an end product that meets their needs,” said Rich Haddad, general manager of Polaris Defense. “It is our goal to match the warfighter’s mission requirements with our best value product.”
