The SCAR™ family was originally designed and developed by FN Herstal following a solicitation by USSOCOM for a family of assault rifles, designed around two different calibers but featuring high commonality of parts and identical ergonomics. FN Herstal took part in the full and open competition and the FN SCAR™ was chosen among nine
proposals. The SCAR™ family consists of two highly adaptable modular rifles, the SCAR™-L chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO caliber and the SCAR™-H chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO caliber, and the FN40GL™ 40mm low velocity grenade launcher. Both SCAR™ rifles are available with two different barrel lengths: a short barrel for close quarter combat and a standard barrel for longer distances.
he FN40GL™ grenade launcher quickly mounts onto the lower rail of either SCAR™ rifle and can be easily configured for use as a stand-alone weapon as well. All visitors coming to visit our stand at Eurosatory will get their own SCAR™ package including Dick Kramer poster (subject to availability).
FN Herstal’s stand will be located in Hall 6, Belgian Pavilion, stand no. F100k. FN Herstal designs, develops and manufactures a full range of light and portable weapons, integrated weapon systems and ammunition for Military and Law Enforcement Agencies worldwide.
