Less Lethal

While for most of its existence FN Herstal has been involved with traditional firearms, for both defence and security purposes, in the early 2000s the company identified a growing demand for a less lethal capability. This was targeted at police and other public security forces who required a capability that lay between the baton and the firearm.

Accordingly, FN Herstal developed the FN 303® less lethal solution that relies on a dedicated launcher combined with an impact projectile. Together, they deliver a sufficiently dissuasive level of pain within the impact zone to temporarily neutralize a suspect with minimum risk of causing severe or lethal injury.

The performance of ammunition not only affects a weapon’s effectiveness but also its safety and reliability. FN Herstal, as a firearms manufacturer and the original designer of the most widely used NATO standard calibres, is uniquely placed to ensure perfect compatibility between these two fundamental elements: firearms and ammunition.
