Belgium-based FN Herstal has unveiled the newly-developed version of its high performance weapon mounted ballistic calculator for snipers, precision shooters and spotters.
The operational feedback collected from around the world last year has led to improvements in terms of ergonomics and usability. This newest version appears under a brand new name: FN Elity.
The FN Elity Weapon Mounted Ballistic Calculator can fit onto any squad or sniper team weapon of any caliber and spotting scopes.
All in one ballistic calculator
The FN Elity is an all-in-one system that comes standard with the following:
- A laser range finder that can measure a human-size target at distances of up to 1,750m
- Visible and infrared laser pointers
- An infrared illuminator with variable light intensity and adjustable beam cone
- A ballistic solver, developed by ApexO (AFS), that provides real time shooting corrections and goes beyond classic G1,G7 drag coefficients to calculate the bullet trajectory
- Embedded sensors (e.g. temperature, pressure, humidity, elevation angle) that provide the data needed to fine-tune the shooting corrections according to the environment
- An Android app, based on the well-known AFS software from ApexO and using Bluetooth to configure every parameter of the ballistic solver for an improved user experience
- The latest generation OLED screen displaying relevant information visible in the most difficult weather and light conditions.
Due to its ballistic solver and multiple user features, the FN Elity is a leading asset to help increase first hit probability at long range. It provides additional state-of-the-art designation capabilities, while being one of the most compact systems available on the market, delivering to warfighters and security forces an unchallenged tactical edge.
