FN Herstal Aims for Bulls Eye in Malaysian Market

Our Bureau - : May 5, 2024 - : 7:59 pm

Belgium-based FN Herstal is showcasing its portfolio of modern small arms at the ongoing Defence Services Asia (DSA) exhibition and conference. FN Herstal has several customers in the Asia-Pacific region, and a sales office in Singapore.

The Malaysian Armed Forces have had FN Herstal weapons in service for over 60 years and the Belgian firm is displaying a wide range of products at DSA this year, including its FN SCAR family of rifles with configurations for every type of military or law enforcement mission and the small arms firms light, medium and heavy machine guns, along with handguns including the new FN HiPer 9mm pistol. This new pistol combines the best of current designs with patented innovative features to give users the best in ergonomics, reliability and safety.

The Belgian company is also showcasing its range of integrated weapon systems for air, sea and land platforms includes weapon stations equipped with FN machine guns, for tracked and wheeled, manned and unmanned ground vehicles. Also being displayed is a variety of small arms ammunition. Several NATO standard calibres were designed by FN and the company also has a long history of transferring technology and assisting customers to set up, convert, or expand ammunition production facilities.

Malaysia’s Armed Forces adopted FN Herstal’s FAL (SLR) rifle and the FN MAG machine gun in 7.62mm NATO, and the Browning 9mm High Power pistol when they changed their small arms from WW2 era equipment. This close relationship continued later with the adoption of the FN M2HB-QCB .50 Cal machine gun and the FN MINIMI light machine gun.
