Polaris Receives Three More Awards to Supply Military ATVs
Polaris Industries today announced the company received three separate awards exceeding $12 million dollars to supply MV700 ATVs, MVRS700 Side-by-Side vehicles and associated spare parts to the U.S. military and its allies.
“Polaris vehicles appeal to the military due to our ability to modify our commercial off-the-shelf vehicles with additional accessories for different military missions,” says Rich Haddad, general manager of Polaris Defense. “The features and superiority of our product make them highly sought-after for military applications.”
The MV700 ATV and MVRS700 Side-by-Side both feature a 700cc, Electronic Fuel Injected engine with an automatic transmission, true all-wheel drive and run flat tires to tackle any type of terrain. The MV700 also has front and rear winches, 600 lb rack capacity, 1,500 lb towing capacity, dual fuel tanks and is air droppable and sling capable. The MVRS700 Side-by-Side seats two soldiers and also features a nine-gallon fuel tank, rear bed with fold-down sides, D-rings and tie downs and a rugged, steel exoskeleton.
