 FN Herstal to Put Up Strong Show at DEFEA 2021

The world’s leading designer and manufacturer of small caliber firearms and ammunition, FN Herstal will showcase a wide range of weapons at  DEFEA International Defence and Security Exhibition from July 13 through to 15, 2021, in Athens, Greece. 


The FN SCAR is an entire Rifle family that covers the full range of requirements of the modern soldier. The FN SCAR’s highly innovative design combines outstanding performance in all conditions with unlimited modularity and flexibility. Ergonomic commonality and parts commonality throughout the FN SCAR family ensure simplified armorer and user level training and reduced life cycle costs. 

The FN SCAR-L (5.56x45mm NATO) and the FN SCAR-H (7.62x51mm NATO) assault rifles, able to take the 40mm FN40GL grenade launcher, are for front line missions. FN’s SCAR-SC subcompact carbines, chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO or 7.62x35mm (.300 BLK) caliber, are a perfect choice for carrying and use in confined spaces. 

The 7.62x51mm NATO FN SCAR-H PR and TPR precision rifles provide long range accuracy with rapid semi-auto or selective fire for designated marksmen or sniper teams. 

FN 5.7x28mm Weapon System 

As a NATO standardized caliber, the 5.7x28mm caliber provides armies with the guarantee of interchangeability between ammunition from different manufacturers and operational efficiency in weapons of this caliber.

FN P90 Tactical submachine gun and the FN Five-seveN Tactical Mk2 pistol are both chambered in the recently NATO standardized 5.7x28mm caliber and constitute the FN 5.7x28mm Weapon System.

Currently fielded in over 40 countries in all environments, regular armies and Special Forces can rely on a very effective and reliable weapon-cartridge duo combining efficiency, reliability and reduced risk of collateral damage. 

The FN Five-seveN Tactical Mk2 pistol provides rapid target engagement, with low recoil and has a short and light trigger pull.

The FN P90 Tactical submachine gun is lightweight and very compact (50cm long, ready to fire) making it easy to handle in confined spaces and simple to use and maintain.

It provides the means to face armed and threatening individuals effectively and safely. The FN P90 also has optional accessories, such as optical sights, tactical lights, and sound suppressor. The FN P90 is also available with a visible or IR laser pointer fully integrated into the receiver. 

Sea deFNder for any naval platform

Alongside small caliber firearms and ammunition, FN Herstal also proposes a full range of integrated weapon systems for air, land and sea operations. The Sea deFNder remote weapon station is perfectly suited to support maritime needs and requirements. The naval remote weapon station on display at DEFEA will feature the exclusive .50 caliber FN M3R machine gun, with a high rate of fire of 1,100 RPM. Configurations are also available with FN MAG or FN M2HB-QCB machine gun. The Belgian company has expanded its portfolio and secured a number of major contracts for land and sea applications worldwide.

 FN Herstal designed and developed its first remote weapon station more than fifteen years ago.
