Some modifictaions will be made on the DAGOR vehicles to meet Canada’s requirements : redesigned payload configuration, weapons mounts, electrical system improvements, and communication systems.

The DAGOR has world-class capability in extreme off-road terrain at full payload. The purpose-built vehicle is designed with trophy truck-inspired suspension to carry 3,250 lbs of payload or a 9-man infantry squad at a higher rate of speed over terrain usually traveled on foot. This allows the warfighter to move quickly to the objective with mission-critical equipment.

DAGOR's unique design allows for ease of operation, maintenance and sustainment in support of combat operations. The vehicle uses a readily available commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) driveline, controls and components streamlining mechanic and operator training. The open design of the cargo bed maximizes loading space, flexibility and access for mission-essential equipment.

The vehicle’s weight is less than 4,500lbs to maximize aircraft operational range. The vehicle has completed government durability testing and is certified for C-130 and CH-47 Chinook Internal Air Transport (IAT), air drop, and UH-60 Black Hawk Sling Load.

Polaris Defense, a division of Polaris Industries, provides the U.S. and its allies with a family of purpose-built ultra-light vehicles for military and government use.
