Taking advantage of its century-long firearms expertise, FN HERSTAL designs, develops and manufactures fully integrated airborne systems with unprecedented and unequalled firing capabilities for multi-role helicopters and subsonic aircraft while maintaining simplicity of use and crew safety.

FN pintle weapon systems for helicopters and subsonic aircraft are fully mechanical and do not require any electrical power, making firing possible even if the carrier faces problems. The FN pintle-mounted system features a .50 cal or 7.62mm machine gun firing in open bolt mode, ensuring full safety and reliability, and is mounted on a soft mount, guaranteeing outstanding balance during firing, hence increased accuracy.

The pintle weapon system on display at the show will be the FN Medium Ramp Pintle, or MRP, that is ramp-positioned and equipped with a .50 cal M3M/GAU-21 machine gun. FN Herstal’s M3 machine gun, with high firing rate of 1,100 RPM, is a worldwide standard for rotary wing applications and is considered by end users as the best optimum performance vs. weight for the benefit of crew protection. Alternatively, FN pintle weapon systems can also be door-or window-fitted.

     
     
In addition to the integrated weapon systems for airborne applications that equip more than 2,800 helicopters and subsonic aircraft worldwide, the world leader in small arms manufacture will display its wide range of portable weapons, e.g.

The FN SCAR® Assault Rifle is available in two calibers (5.56x45mm NATO cal or 7.62x51mm NATO cal) and with two different barrel lengths, either short or standard for close-quarters combat or standard infantry roles respectively.

The well-thought design features of the FN SCAR® assault rifle makes it lightweight, highly accurate, and reliable in the most difficult conditions.
     
     
The innovative FN Fire Control Unit, or FN FCU, ensures immediate target neutralization in day or night conditions when firing 40mm grenades. The FN FCU features an ergonomic and ambidextrous design, and is easy to use.

Belgium-based FN Herstal is a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of small caliber weapons, integrated weapon systems and associated ammunition for Military and Law Enforcement as well as Special Forces Operators worldwide.
