Polaris DOGOR, MRZR 4 tactical vehicles at 2016 DefExpo (LIVE)
The Polaris DOGOR (Deployable Advance Ground Off-Road) and MRZR 4 tactical off-road vehicles have been specially shipped to Africa to be showcased at the ongoing 2016 DefExpo in Goa. Both models are claimed to be designed for very high operational efficiency during combat manoeuvres.
The DOGOR is a highly capable off-roader which is developed under a contract with elements of the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and international Special Operations Forces (SOF). The vehicle which looks like a bid daddy of all ATV’s (or a stripped down version of the Hummer) can transport troops even to the remotest part of the world.
The military off-roader uses readily available Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) driveline, controls and components so that serviceability and operator training are kept simple. A diesel JP8 motor propels the vehicle.
Polaris MRZR 4
Polaris MRZR 4 is an ATV which is fully kitted up to be used in a combat mission. The vehicle is claimed to offer extreme off-road capability combined with impressive agility. The versatile vehicle can carry troops as well as sizeable amount of cargo. It can also be easily be tweaked to adopt several configurations depending on the mission requirements.
Both Polaris DOGOR and MRZR 4 are being used by the US and its allied forces in the defence sector. Polaris hopes that showcasing its products at the DefExpo would gain the attention of relevent entities within Africa’s defence sector.
