Polaris Defense touts DAGOR truck for Army ULCV program


DAGOR  (Polaris Defense)

Polaris Defense has pitched its DAGOR truck for the U.S. Army’s Ultra Light Combat Vehicle (ULCV) program.

The defense vehicle manufacturer announced Tuesday that it has submitted a response to the Army’s request for information regarding the ULCV program.

DAGOR generated plenty of buzz when it made its public debut at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) meeting and exposition in October. Larger than Polaris' MRZR and MV850, DAGOR has a curb weight of less than 4,500 lbs and can carry up to a 3,250-lb payload.

The vehicle has already completed certification testing for CH-47 Chinook Internal Air Transport (IAT), air drop and UH-60 Black Hawk Sling Load, according to Polaris Defense.

“Our tested and proven DAGOR vehicle is in the hands of U.S. and allied Special Forces and the feedback has been extremely positive,” said Rich Haddad, general manager of Polaris Defense, in a statement. “It was designed for requirements very similar to what we are seeing materialize for the ULCV.”
