Belgian 5.56 mm light machine gun developed by Fabrique Nationale (FN) in Herstal by Ernest Vervier. First introduced in 1974, it has entered service with the armed forces of several countries, among them: Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Greece, Italy, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Thailand, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States (as the M249 SAW). The weapon is currently manufactured at the FN facility in Herstal as well as being license-built in Australia, Greece and the USA (by FN Manufacturing LLC). The Minimi is configured in several variants, the standard model (as a platoon or squad support weapon), the Para version (for use with armored vehicle crews, helicopter pilots and parachute infantry) and the vehicle model (as secondary armament for fighting vehicles).
The British Army designation for the FN Minimi is L108A1 (fixed stock) and L110A1 (para model).
