The French are adopting the FN MAG

    I have been informed that the French DGA (Direction Générale de l’Armement, Armament Procurement Agency) will be adopting the FN MAG to replace the AANF1 machine guns in service.The purchase of 10-11,000 is expected to be confirmed soon.

    After losing a couple of contracts, this will be very good news for FNH.
