When paratroopers from the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne division’s quick-reaction force jump near Torun, Poland, next month on a NATO exercise, an all-terrain vehicle it’s evaluating will descend by parachute as well, an Army commander said.

About 10 of the ATVs made by Polaris Industries Inc. will be air-dropped along with about 600 paratroopers from C-17 transports as part of a “joint, forcible-entry exercise,” Colonel Colin Tuley told reporters in a telephone interview this week.
