FNH UK: a Long-Term Partner for British Defence Forces

FNH UK is the UK-based subsidiary of FN Herstal, a name synonymous with excellence and global leadership, backed up by passionate and talented people for 130 years. 

The unique FN portfolio includes portable firearms and ammunition, less lethal systems, an FN® e-novation line, integrated weapon solutions for air, land, sea applications and remote weapon stations, all combined with a 360-degree service.

Pistols & Submachine Guns

The FN Five-seveN® Tactical Mk2 pistol is extremely light with a magazine holding 20 cartridges. The FN P90® submachine gun is a compact, lightweight weapon with a 50-round magazine making it the ideal Personal Defence Weapon.

Carbines, Rifles & Grenade Launchers

The FN SCAR® family of rifles covers the full range of requirements with the very short subcompact version, the 5.56mm and 7.62mm NATO calibre assault rifles, and the highly accurate precision rifles. The 40mm FN40GL® Mk2 grenade launcher, mounted under any FN SCAR® assault rifle or used as a stand-alone launcher, provides increased capability to the user.

Machine Guns

The FN MINIMI® Light Machine Gun (now Mk3 version) available in 5.56mm and 7.62mm NATO calibre, the FN MAG® 7.62mm NATO General Purpose/Medium Machine Gun, and the FN® M2HB-QCB and FN® M3 .50 Cal Machine Guns have repeatedly proved themselves in combat to earn their position as market leaders in their field.

Less Lethal Systems

FNH UK proposes a range of FN 303® less lethal launchers and projectiles that deliver a sufficiently dissuasive, temporary level of pain within the impact zone to obtain immediate compliance.

FN® e-novation Line

This innovative line is composed of the FN® Expert marksmanship training system, FN® FCU Mk3 fire control unit for 40mm grenades and FN SmartCore® shot counter with dedicated software for smart small arms management.
