FN® FCU Mk3 Fire Control Unit for 40mm Grenades on display at SOFIC 2019


(Herstal, Belgium) – May 15, 2019. For 130 years, Belgium-based FN Herstal has provided generations of
Defense and Security Forces as well as Special Units, with firearms that give them a clear advantage in any
engagement. This proud tradition is set to continue long into the future, with the integration of the latest
generation of electronic modules coming from the cutting-edge FN® e-novation range of solutions, that
FN Herstal and its US-based subsidiary FN America will exhibit at SOFIC, USA (FL), May 20-23, 2019.
The FN® FCU Mk3 Fire Control Unit provides a
complete sighting and aiming solution for 40mm
LV and MV grenade launchers. It calculates the
trajectory of grenades and gives an adjusted
point of aim enabling the grenadier to obtain first
round hits in all conditions – night and day. The
FN® FCU Mk3 comprises a laser range finder; a large
aiming window for easy target acquisition; sensors
for temperature, angles of elevation, and cant ; a
ballistic calculator ; and a self-adjusting electronic
reticle. It also has a quick detach base through a
MIL-STD-1913 type interface and one hand
activated lever. When combined, all these features help
to dramatically increase the hit probability of the 40mm grenade system in defense and security operations, and
embody FN Herstal’s motto of "Enhancing capability through e-technology". The FN® FCU Mk3 can be fitted onto
any rifles or carbines - such as the FN SCAR® (FN® MK 16 or 17) assault rifle featuring an underslung grenade
launcher, onto stand-alone launchers such as FN40GL®-S (FN® MK13) or onto multi-shot grenade launchers.
