Polaris Defense reports it is supplying 144 diesel-powered MRZR off-road vehicles to the U.S. Marine Corps for its infantry regiments.
The 144 utility vehicles to be delivered are in a four-seat configuration and will be used for logistics support at the tactical level.
"We introduced the diesel MRZR earlier this year and the Marines were among the first to purchase vehicles for test and evaluation," said Joaquin Salas, business development manager, Polaris Defense. "The MRZRs off-road mobility, heavy fuel compatibility and internal transport certifications on vertical-lift aircraft make it a force multiplier for Marine infantry units."
The contract for the vehicles spare parts blocks in support of the vehicles.
Polaris Defense gave no information as to the vehicle delivery schedule or the monetary value of the deal.
