    Someone testing/evaluating the Polaris MZR?

    Just curious, saw what looked very like a Polaris MZR, strapped onto a low loader with a tarp over the seating...along the M7


    (I'll understand if mods close this)

    Theres a Polaris dealer in Carlow , Polaris - Stormtec

    also, nice bit of kit if it was an MRZR, but I doubt a senior NCO will be swanning about in one with spare ammo, looks more like its for the sneaky beakys.

    With the NZ Army taking a job lot of these over the next while, what scope is there for our regular Army units considering something similar? Financing is always the pinch point (PCP anyone?), but they do seem to be pretty useful in a multitude of roles.

    An Cosantoir had an article on using such vehicles a while back discussing their use in an exercise if I remember correctly. Anyway's to whoever is driving that one that was on the M7 a while back, safe driving

    They are a force multiplier and very necessary to enable "fight light"
