Polaris Defense has recently introduced the Non-Pneumatic Tire, which is an airless tire designed to not get flat on the road. A honeycomb-like structure inside keeps the tire rigid without requiring an air-filled cavity found in normal tires. Officials have tested the NPTs over 5,000 miles with a .50 caliber bullet hole, allowing for continuous operation even if up to 30 percent of the web is damaged.
