According to Canada’s National Post publication Polaris Industries was recently awarded a $20 million contract to produce 78 DAGOR vehicles for the Canadian Special Operations Command (CANSOFCOM). The Ultra Light Combat Vehicle is an ultra-performance, combat ready version vehicle with lineage tracing back to the company’s highly popular Ranger utility vehicle. The Special Forces unit will take delivery of 52 DAGOR units in 2017 and the additional 26 vehicles will be delivered in 2018.
The National Post went on to report:
Polaris Industries will be using the services of Black’s Corners Motorsports (BCM), from Carleton Place, Ont., for post-delivery support. This includes support for the life of the vehicles, repairs, the warehousing of spare parts and any warranty support as needed.
John Olson, vice president and general manager of Polaris Government and Defense, said in a statement the firm is “pleased to have been selected to provide our DAGOR vehicles to CANSOFCOM as this major international program award builds on our strong current domestic base.”
“We are proud to partner with Canadian government and industry to deliver this ground mobility capability and the life-cycle support to smartly sustain it,” Olson added.
