Polaris Industries has received an additional $6 million in orders from the Army to provide vehicles, parts and accessories of the company’s militarized ATV, the MV700.
The additional vehicles and parts will be used for operations in Afghanistan, Polaris said in a press release.
Polaris’ MV700 previously has been involved in a variety of missions conducted in urban, rural, mountain and desert areas worldwide.
“Polaris is very proud to continue its role in providing the U.S. Army and its allies with world-class machines that can be relied on to perform under the toughest conditions,” Bennett Morgan, Polaris’ president and chief operating officer, said in the press release.
“We are very serious about what it takes to be a long-term valued supplier to military and government customers.”
Polaris has been supplying a family of vehicles to the U.S. Department of Defense as well as other government agencies and U.S. allies for the past five years.
