MINNEAPOLIS - Polaris will make light tactical vehicles for the German Army according to a contract announced yesterday.

Polaris's highly mobile MV850 ultralight tactical vehicle was built specifically for the U.S. military and allied forces. It is used to transport military personnel and gear through extreme off-road terrain, according to Polaris. 

The MV850 has a 600 lb. 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, insert customer requirements and quickly deliver an end product that meets their needs," said Rich Haddad, general manager of Polaris Defense, in the BusinessWire press release.
