Belgian small arms manufacturer FN Herstal and French armored vehicle manufacturer Renault Trucks Defense have recently announced their close co-operation at the international Eurosatory trade show, being held in Paris from 11-15 June, 2012.
Renault Trucks Defense will demonstrate its VAB Mk II 4×4 vehicle equipped with FN Herstal’s deFNder Medium Remote Weapon
Station in the outdoor live area, every day of the exhibition.
The deFNder Medium will be fitted with a .50 cal FN M3P machine gun, which provides high rate of fire (1,100 RPM) and is a world
exclusive by FN Herstal.
Renault Trucks Defense will also exhibit their Higuard (MRAP) vehicle featuring a deFNder Light Remote Weapon Station on their outdoor static display (booth no. A520). The deFNder Light will be equipped with a 7.62x51mm cal FN MAG machine gun. Light weight and low silhouette make the deFNder Light perfect for integration onto low payload vehicles.
Both deFNder feature unique elevation and depression angles (+80°;-60° for the Light, and approx. +73°;-42° for the Medium, subject to weapon type), and can accept a large number of user-defined features and options such as control handle, sight module, ammunition box and stabilization. They will also be on show on FN Herstal’s booth – Hall 6, Booth no. F200 (Belgian Pavilion).
