Polaris Defense has internationally introduced its new ultra-light off-road vehicle for transporting cargo or a nine-person infantry/special operations squad.
The vehicle is called Dagor and took its bow at the International Defense Exhibition and Conference is Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
"Polaris Defense understands the off-road vehicle environment better than anybody," said Doug Malikowski, director of international business development. "We're continually developing vehicles and technology in support of warfighters around the world and DAGOR is the latest example of that.
"Together with U.S. light forces, we identified a mobility gap and developed DAGOR to meet that capability need. This vehicle meets a challenging set of requirements which is to be extremely off-road capable at full payload while maintaining ease of transportability with tactical air assets."
The Dagor can carry a nine-person infantry squad or 3,250 lbs of payload. Its curb weight is less than 4500 pounds.
Polaris Defense said the vehicle features a commercial off-the-shelf driveline, controls and components, including a diesel/JP8 COTS engine.
