Polaris selected for Canada's ULCV contract
The company will supply DAGOR vehicles, maintenance and operator training, and spare parts to Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM) under the USD$15.5 million contract. Options for additional vehicles are also included.
The DAGOR vehicles will be configured with a range of modifications to meet Canada’s requirements, including redesigned payload configuration, weapons mounts, electrical system improvements, and integrated communication systems.
The ultra-light combat vehicle is designed to be modular and light-weight to support a variety of expeditionary missions. The vehicle seats up to nine personnel, and can be internally transported on a number of in-service aircraft, including the CH-47 and C-130.
