AUSA 2019: DAGOR A1 platforms in demonstrations, tests for potential customers

14 October 2019

Polaris Government and Defense is marketing its DAGOR A1 ultra-light tactical vehicle with added payload capacity, and has platforms out for trials with possible customers.

The A1 variant makes several improvements on the original model, most notably in payload at 4,000 lb (1,814 kg), up from 3,250 lb, Jed Leonard, vice-president at Polaris Government and Defense, told Jane's at the annual Association of the United States Army (AUSA) conference in October.

The DAGOR has been sold to Pentagon customers, Canada, and an unnamed US ally. Canada has purchased the DAGOR A1 variant as well, Leonard said. The company said in 2018 that it was under contract "to provide [Canadian Special Operations Forces Command] CANSOFCOM with the DAGOR A1 with a specialty ULCV [Ultra-Light Combat Vehicle] package".
