Land Forces 24 728x90 WEB 240202 01FN Herstal’s deFNder Medium remote weapon station can be fitted with FN machine guns – including FN Herstal’s exclusive fast firing (1,100 rpm) .50 Cal (12.7x99mm NATO) FN M3R -, or 40mm HV AGL. Thanks to its modular architecture this proven remote gun turret can be adapted for a very wide range of applications such as static positions, manned or unmanned ground vehicles, and naval vessels.

It is now possible to order the deFNder Medium configured for a Northrop Grumman M230LF 30x113mm cannon, or a reversible conversion kit to upgrade existing RWS. The deFNder Medium equipped with the 30mm cannon is exceptionally low profile (< 80cm) and light (300 kg with gun and 50 rounds) compared to other similar systems.

The larger calibre gun gives increased range (effective up to 2,000m) and greater capability against a wide range of targets such as light armoured vehicles, and many manned or unmanned aerial threats. With this new configuration, FN Herstal offers the market a unique proposition, being the only partner to qualify its RWS with FN® machine guns, 40mm AGL and M230LF for a total combat ready weight of less than 300 kg.
