FN Herstal has announced that its new Multi Weapon Mount has been fully MIL-STD certified and is ready for service.

The FN MWM is qualified for use on wheeled or tracked vehicles, the naval variant – FN Sea MWM – has been tested and qualified for use in extreme maritime environments.

It joins a wide range of high-performance products in FN Herstal’s Air, Land and Sea Weapon Systems catalogue.

The FN MWM will be shown for the first time at DSEI 2023 in London in two weeks’ time.

Mission success and survivability often depend on the ability to rapidly adapt to the battlefiel and the FN MWM is a new weapon mount for ground and naval platforms.

The weapon interface can be adapted in minutes to take different calibre weapons: 12.7x99mm NATO (.50 Cal) heavy machine guns (FN M2HB-QCB), 7.62x51mm NATO medium machine guns (FN MAG 58M/infantry, FN M240 D, H and L) and 40mm Automatic Grenade Launcher (MK19 AGL).

The FN MWM, which was developed, tested and qualified in a collaborative project between FN Herstal and FNH UK, includes a hydraulic buffer system that ensures optimal weapon performance in all conditions and at all firing angles, while minimizing the effects of recoil on the platform and to the user.

The weapon mount is fully mechanical, so it is not dependent on electrical power from the carrier. It has a range of options that includes weapon specific adaptors (for FN MAG, FN M240 and MK19), ballistic protection, links and cases collector and a shoulder bar.
