FN Herstal’s FN Fire Control Unit (FCU) Mk3 has been selected for the German Army’s Future Soldier Expanded System (IdZ-ES) programme, the company announced on 27 February.

The FN FCU Mk3 is designed to increase the hit probability of the 40mm grenade system.

The FN FCU Mk3 takes into account a number of factors including the range to the target, slope angle, temperature, grenade type, cant and drift effect and automatically indicates the correct point of aim to the user.

The FCU is easy to use, day and night capable, light and compact, and can be fitted onto a wide range of underbarrel and stand-alone launchers.

The FN FCU Mk3 combines several laser safety features for enhanced training capability.
