FN® FCU Mk3 Fire Control Unit
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. 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.
