The FN Fire Control Unit is part of an expanded global solution under development by FN Herstal. Known as Armatronics™, it is a fully integrated system of electronic solutions mounted on or inside a weapon. Additional enhancements for increased functionality to the system are on the horizon as new technologies are explored. Successful target engagement with tube-launched grenades requires precise range estimation to the target and launch at the exact elevation angle, hile keeping correct azimuth aiming. With FN Herstal's Moving Red Dot Fire Control Unit (FCU), the shooter can now rely on a light, compact and easily used device to significantly increase the effectiveness of grenade launchers.
The FN Fire Control Unit consists of: - A laser range finder (LRF), which calculates the distance between the shooter and the target - An clinometer, which measures the difference in elevation between the target and the shooter - A ballistic computer, which calculates the angle of launch required - A moving red dot sight (MRD), which gives the correct aiming point The FN Fire Control Unit can be fitted on any rifle or grenade launcher type with a top Picatinny rail. The FN Herstal control unit is equipped with a ballistic computer which can memorize and calculate ballistic solutions for up to 50 different grenades types and Takes into account and compensates for the initial angle of target in relation to the shooter.
