Army Ranger testing SCAR

FN HERSTAL MOVES FORWARD WITH INITIAL SCAR PRODUCTION

McLEAN, Va. ? FN Herstal announced today through FNH USA that the Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle (SCAR) program has had marked success in the first phase of pre-delivery, low rate initial production (LRIP) acceptance testing by the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) and Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane. The first LRIP deliveries will take place over the next month with subsequent deliveries running through October 2007. The announcement came at the opening of the 2007 National Defense Industrial Association Small Arms Symposium held in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

The Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle (SCAR) system consists of two highly adaptable modular rifle platforms and a grenade launcher. Now US DoD type designated as the MK 16 MOD 0 5.56mm Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle - Light (SCAR-L) and the MK 17 MOD 0 7.62mm Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle ? Heavy (SCAR-H),
both SCAR platforms are available with three different barrel lengths optimized for conducting operations in close-quarters combat, standard infantry and longer-range precision fire roles. All SCAR barrels can be easily interchanged by the operator in the field in just minutes to instantly meet the requirements of virtually any mission. The newly designated MK 13 MOD 0 40mm Enhanced Grenade Launcher Module (EGLM) quickly mounts to the underside of either SCAR platform, providing additional punch to the individual warfighter?s firepower and can be easily configured for use as a stand-alone weapon as well.

?We at FN are very excited with the performance and reliability of the latest SCAR weapons. This new modular system brings about a monumental paradigm shift in combat assault rifle capability, allowing not only real-time mission adaptability with three different barrel configurations, but also the caliber agility to adapt to new and improved ammunition designs as they come online,? noted Mark Cherpes, Vice President of Military Operations for FNH USA. ?We feel that the SCAR is the most flexible, reliable and cost effective weapons system ever offered to America?s fighting men and women, and will give them a potent operational advantage in armed conflicts both present and future.?

The selection of the SCAR in 2004 was the first assault rifle procured by the United States military through a full and open competition since the M4/M16 trials were held in the mid-1960s. Representing the leading edge of current modular assault rifle design, the SCAR development process has covered some 32 months thus far and is the result of a close and ongoing interaction between USSOCOM, SOF operators, combat developers, government program office personnel and the engineers and technicians of FN Herstal. Every possible effort has been made to ensure that the new SCAR weapons system is the most reliable, accurate, rugged, safe and ergonomic assault weapon ever to be carried into combat.

FNH USA is the sales and marketing arm of FN Herstal, S. A., Belgium, whose corporate mission is to remain a global leader in the areas of defense, law enforcement and associated commercial markets, providing the highest quality products and the finest in training and logistical support.
