The MRZR2 and MRZR4 are highly-mobile, CV-22 transportable, multi-configurable off-road platforms, and will be supplied with accessories, spare parts, mechanical and operator training.

“Polaris is proud to supply the U.S. Special Operations Forces with our high-performing MRZR vehicles,” said Rich Haddad, general manager of Polaris Defense. “As a recognized industry leading original manufacturer of off-road vehicles, Polaris is uniquely positioned to rapidly develop and provide the military with purpose built mobility platforms.”

This award comes on the heels of the five-year contract awarded to Polaris, in August, to provide MV850 ATVs to USSOCOM. The MV850 is a highly-mobile single operator ATV platform, designed for the U.S. military and allied forces. These recent contract awards reflect Polaris’ commitment to serve the U.S. military and favorably positions the company to supply the US and allied militaries with ultra-light tactical vehicles and mobility solutions.

“These platforms are a modular design to meet the demanding needs of U.S. and international special operations, expeditionary and light infantry forces,” added Haddad. “Both of these vehicles are deployed and in use around the globe, in all of the U.S. military branches and special operations forces along with several allied militaries and special operations forces.”
