FN Herstal recently designed and developed a new integrated weapons system called the Medium Vehicle Pintle (MVP) that provides vehicles operated by Armed Forces - and Special Forces in particular - with maximum firepower.
The Medium Vehicle Pintle is derived from technology that has contributed to FN Herstal's success in airborne applications over the recent years.
The MVP features:
    the exclusive .50 cal M3P/M3M (GAU-21) machine guns, which is currently in use on more than 2,500 helicopters and subsonic aircraft worldwide, providing a high firing rate of 1,100 rounds per minute and featuring unique operating angles (±80° elevation and ±80° depression)
     a soft mount system that absorbs recoil forces and guarantees outstanding balance during burst and unequalled firing accuracy
     a 300-round ammunition box mounted on the pintle head, which eliminates the need for a flexible chute
     a telescopic shoulder brace which ensures maximum comfort for short and long range target acquisition
     a standard pintle connection interface for easy installation on the vehicle
     an optional links collector.
The MVP is a fully mechanical system that does not require any electrical power to function, making firing possible even under extreme conditions of electrical power loss of vehicle.
