FN Herstal has recently been selected by a Special Forces unit in Europe to enhance their 40mm Multi-Shot Grenade Launchers with high-grade FN FCU Mk3 Fire Control Units. Under extreme stress or severe combat conditions, first round hit probability with a 40mm LV/MV is low, even for an experienced shooter. The FN FCU Mk3 Fire Control Unit uses new technologies and advanced electronics to calculate the trajectory of grenades and give an adjusted point of aim ensuring first round hits in all conditions, night and day.
Lightweight, compact, and user-friendly, the FN FCU Mk3 can be fitted onto any rifles featuring a rail-mounted grenade launcher, onto stand-alone grenade launchers or onto multi-shot grenade launchers regardless of the manufacturer. It was recently selected by a Europe-based Special Forces unit to equip 40mm Multi-Shot Grenade Launchers (MGLs).
