Polaris Defense military units sent to Poland

Approximately 10 of the MRZRs made by Polaris will be air-dropped during a NATO exercise in Poland next month, according to an article on Bloomberg.com.

Colonel Colin Tuley told Bloomberg that the units would be dropped with about 600 paratroopers of the U.S. Army's 82nd Airborne division from C-17 transports as part of a "joint, forcible-entry exercise."

The MRZR can carry as many as six soldiers and travel at 60 miles per hour, making them a valuable asset to the test. Brigadier General Brain Winski said that "these vehicles significantly enhance what would otherwise be foot mobility...[letting troops strike] at a pace and in locations the enemy would not expect."

The MRZRs and paratroopers are scheduled to depart Fort Bragg, N.C. on June 6.
