'Military Inspired' ATV With Airless, Unpoppable Tires

airless-tire-atv.jpg

This is the $15,000 Sportsman WV850 H.O. from Polaris. That's a pretty poor name. I would have called it the Unstoppable Earthf***er or something with STYLE. The all-terrain military inspired vehicle includes unpoppable TerrainArmor™ non-pneumatic tires which can stand up to M4, AK-47, and .50-caliber ballistics. You know, because that's something to consider when buying an ATV. Sure it has a cup holder, but will the wheels pop if I get into a firefight? "Well, yeah, but so will your head." THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME. Call me when it can stand up to a bear orgy.

Keep going for a couple more shots and a commercial.

Thanks to hairsprung and Eli, who agrees the best all terrain vehicle is a jetpack.

    Now taking Orders for the Polaris WV850 - contact me using the form on my website at www.militaryatv.com; we can leave the factory wheels or replace with the RP Advanced SOF II 8 Ply Run flat tires.

  • Might sound sarcastic, but seriously question since you would probably know the answer: What is the military application of a single seat vehicle that requires two hands to drive, and doesn't provide any cover? I'm know nothing about the military, but I'd just think that common sense would say you'd want either another seat for a gunner or some type of protection if your in an active war zone right?

    According to an army friend of mine they are sometimes used for reconnaissance (or however that's spelt) and for individual sniper teams but never in battle as far as he knows.

  • Big Hug Mug

    There's holes in this theory

  • Darren

    Holds more gasoline then my car.

  • Shane Anderson

    We will be needing something like this on my moon base or future mars base.
