A tested and certified multi-calibre weapon system designed by a long-proven weapon system supplier

The FN® MWM, which was developed, tested and qualified in a collaborative project between FN Herstal and FNH UK, includes a hydraulic buffer system that ensures optimal weapon performance in all conditions and at all firing angles, while minimizing the effects of recoil on the platform and to the user. The weapon mount is fully mechanical, so it is not dependent on electrical power from the carrier. It has a range of options that includes weapon specific adaptors (for FN MAG®, FN® M240 and MK19), ballistic protection, links and cases collector and a shoulder bar.

The FN® MWM is qualified for use on wheeled or tracked vehicles, the naval variant – FN® Sea MWM – has been tested and qualified for use in extreme maritime environments.

Trouble-free integration (standard or customer specific platform connections) and fully reliable operation with FN Herstal’s renowned range of machine guns, which are in service worldwide, is guaranteed with FN mounts such as the FN® MWM.

Be ready for anything with this modular and highly adaptable multi-weapon mount – the only weapon mount certified by FN Herstal for use with FN Herstal machine guns.
