MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Small all-terrain off-road vehicles are being supplied to the German Army by Minnesota-headquartered Polaris Industries Inc.

Polaris did not disclose the number of vehicles it would supply the German Army, the value of the contract or the delivery schedule.

The ATV to be supplied is the MV850 ultra-light tactical vehicle, which the company builds exclusively for the U.S. military and allied forces for the transport of troops and soldier's equipment. The wheeled vehicle has a metal rack system with a 600-pound capacity, an 11.75 gallon fuel capacity, and blackout lighting with infrared capability. It is operated by one person.

The MV850 also has an optional mount for casualty litters.

"Defense forces around the world are seeking Polaris Defense Military vehicles to take advantage of our ability to make modifications to our commercial off-the-shelf technology, insert customer requirements and quickly deliver an end-product that meets their needs," said Rich Haddad, general manager of Polaris Defense. "It is our goal to match the warfighter's mission requirements with our best value product."
