A unique range of small calibre weapons, integrated weapon systems and associated ammunition at DVD2018
FNH UK, the UK-based subsidiary of one of the world’s leading firearms manufacturers FN Herstal, will unveil its full capabilities at the DVD2018 show, due to take place at Millbrook, UK, on 19 and 20 September 2018.
Since its acquisition by FN Herstal on 1 July 2014, FNH UK (at the time known as Manroy Engineering) has undergone a huge level of transformation in the areas of manufacturing and capacity, along with an increased level of sustainability and capability, in order to support the UK defence and security markets. Backed by FN Herstal’s 130 years of excellence in designing, developing and manufacturing innovative solutions based on small calibre firearms and their ammunition, FNH UK is now able to offer the group’s entire range of defence and security products to the UK market. A representative range of FN® portfolio will be showcased at DVD2018.
The whole range of FN® machine guns include the FN MINIMI® Light Machine Gun (now Mk3 version for improved ergonomics and accessory integration) available in 5.56mm and 7.62mm NATO calibres, the FN MAG® 7.62mm NATO General Purpose/Medium Machine Gun, and the FN® M3 and M2HB-QCB .50cal machine guns have repeatedly proved themselves in combat.
The FN SCAR® Family covers the full range of requirements, with the very short subcompact version, the 5.56mm and 7.62mm NATO calibre assault rifles, the 40mm grenade launcher, and the highly accurate 7.62mm NATO calibre precision rifles. The extremely innovative design of the FN SCAR® not only gives outstanding performance under the most demanding conditions - extreme temperature, sand, mud, water, rough handling -, but also unlimited modularity and flexibility. The FN SCAR® Assault Rifles in 5.56mm and 7.62mm NATO calibres, with rapidly interchangeable standard or short barrels and able to take the FN40GL® grenade launcher, are unbeatable for Special Forces or regular force battlefield missions. Either FN SCAR® Assault Rifle accepts the FN® FCU Mk3 Fire Control Unit for 40mm grenades and is FN SmartCore® Ready for optimised small arms management.
On display for the first time on a UK-based exhibition since being unveiled last November, the FN SCAR®-SC Subcompact Carbine fires rifle calibre ammunition from a submachine gun sized weapon. It is the perfect choice for carrying and use in confined spaces. It comes with a wide choice of buttstock types best suited to the user’s morphology and the mission at hand, and is available with semi-auto or selective fire trigger mechanism.
The FN SCAR® Precision Rifles provide long range accuracy with rapid semi-auto fire for designated marksmen and sniper teams. Optional full auto capability is available for close defence.
On the integrated weapon systems side of the business, FNH UK will showcase the deFNder® Medium Remote Weapon Station, featuring the .50cal FN® M3R machine gun, capable of firing 1,100 RPM.
Alongside small arms and weapon systems, the Company also proposes a full range of ammunition for any weapon of the FN® portfolio, from 5.7x28mm to 12.7x99mm (.50cal) calibre. Various natures, such as ball, tracer and armour-piercing are available.
