82nd Continues To Evaluate Polaris DAGOR

The 82nd Abn Div has been evaluating DAGOR light wheeled vehicles by Polaris. DAGOR was the Polaris Defense submission for the US Army’s Ultra Light Combat Vehicle program and have been with the Division for several months. Most recently, they were used at Ft Bragg’s Air Assault School, offering students with an opportunity to slingload the vehicle.

    This is great news. As I understand it the 82nd has a BDE’s worth (to include four man vehicles for recon elements) and shifts it around to the GRF BDE.
