Voie de Liège, 33-B 4040 Herstal, Belgium



FN Herstal
Belgium-based FN Herstal has a long history of weapon manufacturing excellence dating back to 1889. The company has always focused on innovation and product improvement, resulting in the design, development, production and marketing of a large number of state-of-the-art weapons and associated products.

This accounts for FN Herstal establishing a position of worldwide leadership in the small arms markets.

Firearms designed for defense and security use

FN Herstal is known as a premium partner and provides military and law enforcement, as well as Special Forces operators, with a complete product and capabilities range that includes:

· Portable firearms such as the FN Five-seveN® handgun; FN P90® submachine gun; FN SCAR® family of assault rifles, grenade launchers and precision rifles;, FN MINIMI® Mk3 5.56 and 7.62 light machine guns; FN MAG® general purpose machine gun and FN® M2HB-QCB heavy machine gun

· Less lethal devices such as the carbine-size FN 303® or holster-size FN 303®-P

· FN® e-novation range including the FN® FCU Mk3 Fire Control System for 40mm grenades; FN® Expert marksmanship training system and FN SmartCore® shot counter for FN SCAR® rifles or FN MINIMI® light machine guns and dedicated FN® SAM software that are part of the integrated small arms management solution

Highly adaptable modular rifle platforms FN SCAR®

The FN SCAR ®-L assault rifle and the FN SCAR ®-H assault rifle are both available with two different barrel lengths optimised for conducting operations in close quarters combat or standard infantry roles. All FN SCAR ® barrels can be easily interchanged by the operator in just minutes to instantly meet the requirements of virtually any mission.

The FN40GL ® grenade launcher quickly mounts under the barrel of either FN SCAR ® platform, providing additional capability to the soldier’s firepower, and can be used as a stand-alone weapon as well.

FN Herstal portfolio also includes precision rifles, i.e. FN SCAR®-H PR (foldable buttstock) and FN SCAR®-H TPR (fixed, sniper-type buttstock; T stands for Tactical).

Commonality of training and components throughout FN SCAR® family significantly simplifies, and reduces costs for, operator training and maintenance.

The FN® FCU Mk3 Fire Control System for precision targeting

The FN® FCU Mk3 Fire Control Unit ensures first round hit probability in day or night conditions when firing 40mm LV/MV tube-launched grenades. The FN® FCU features an ergonomic and ambidextrous design, and is very easy to use. The FN® FCU consists of:

· Laser range finder (LRF): calculates the distance between the shooter and the target

· Clinometer: measures the difference in elevation / depression between the target and the shooter

· Ballistic computer: calculates the angle of launch required

· Moving red reticle sight: gives the correct aiming point

· Weapon cant indicator: indicates when weapon realignment is required

The deFNder® Medium for military vehicle defence

The deFNder® Medium has been designed to fulfil the force protection mission through fire support and self-defence when mounted onto any vehicle.

The deFNder® Medium provides the best ratio depression / elevation range (-40°; 70°) versus height (633mm). The deFNder® Medium is the only remote weapon station capable of integrating the exclusive FN® M3R machine gun, which has a unique firing rate of 1,100 rounds per minute. Recent developments includes integration onto UGVs and USVs
