Polaris has been awarded a contract to provide 50 of its DAGOR ultralight tactical vehicles to Romania, joining other NATO countries such as Canada, the UK and US as operators.
Polaris vehicles for Latvia
The Latvian armed forces is to acquire vehicles from Polaris under a foreign military sale with the US government, the company announced on 24 January.
The Polaris ultralight and all-terrain vehicles provide off-road mobility for expeditionary forces. The vehicles will be used primarily for border security as part of Latvia's efforts to strengthen security on the border due to increased regional disputes.
Polaris will also provide spare parts for the vehicles, as well as operator and maintenance training.
Doug Malikowski, director of international business development, Polaris Government and Defense, said: ‘Latvia’s contract for MRZR 2 and ATVs will greatly enhance the mobility of their fleet in the Baltics, positively impacting their tactical advantage and support efforts to reinforce Latvia borders.’
