The deFNder system is the first in a series of such designs and is easily mounted on vehicles or installed in a static position to protect sensitive sites such as embassies, military facilities and secured border environments. When the mission requires bringing a high volume of accurate fire on target while keeping the weapon operator safe and secure, the mission calls for the new FN Light Remotely-operated Weapon Stations (LRWS).

Based on reliable and state-of-the-art technologies, the FN Herstal deFNder Light Remotely Operated Weapon Station has been designed to be used for self-defense missions when mounted onto light, medium or heavy vehicles, perimeter defense missions (border control, protection of military compounds, official buildings, etc.).
