FN Elity is designed to be fitted on any squad or sniper team weapon.

FN Herstal has developed a new version of its weapon-mounted ballistic calculator for snipers, precision shooters and spotters.

FN Elity (pictured mounted on an FN SCAR-H Tactical Precision Rifle with scope) is specifically designed to fit onto spotting scopes and any squad or sniper team weapon of any calibre.

Operational feedback collected from around the world in 2020 led to ‘improvements in terms of ergonomics and usability’, FN Herstal announced when launching the product on 17 February.

Features include a laser rangefinder that can reach a human-sized target up to 1,750m away; visible and IR laser pointers; an IR illuminator with variable light intensity and adjustable beam cone; and ballistic solver software to provide real time shooting corrections and calculate the bullet trajectory.

An Android app, based on AFS software from ApexO, uses Bluetooth ‘to configure every parameter of the ballistic solver for an improved user experience’, FN Herstal noted.

Embedded sensors on FN Elity provide data on temperature, pressure, humidity and elevation angle data to fine-tune shooting corrections according to environmental factors. This data is displayed on an OLED screen.
