Indo Pacific 2023 Ad for APDR 728x90px VISITOR REGISTRATION WEBFN Herstal announced that its new Multi Weapon Mount has been fully MIL-STD certified and is ready for service. It joins a wide range of high-performance products in FN Herstal’s Air, Land and Sea Weapon Systems catalogue.

UnknownMission success and survivability often depend on the ability to rapidly adapt to the battlefield. 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)
  • 40mm Automatic Grenade Launcher (MK19 AGL).

A tested and certified multi-calibre weapon system designed by a long-proven weapon system supplier. 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 minimising 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. 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.

Trouble-free integration (standard or customer specific platform connections) and fully reliable operation with FN Herstal’s renowned range of machine guns, which are in service worldwide, is guaranteed with FN mounts such as the FN MWM.
