Polaris Industries has 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,” said 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 tan, rear bed with fold-down sides, D-rings and tie downs and a rugged, steel Exoskeleton.
