Polaris to Supply Military ATVs to German Army
Polaris Industries has been awarded a contract to provide MV850 ultra-light tactical vehicles to the German Army.
“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, insert customer requirements and quickly deliver an end product that meets their needs,” says Rich Haddad, general manager of Polaris Defense. “It is our goal to match the warfighter’s mission requirements with our best value product.”
The MV850 platform, which was built specifically for the U.S. military and allied forces, features a 600-pound capacity metal rack system, 11.75-gallon fuel capacity, blackout lighting with IR light capability and an optional litter mount.
