The P90 is a Belgian designed submachine gun. The weapon’s name is an abbreviation of Project, and the number 90, which specifies a weapon system of the 1990s. The P90 is considered a Personal Defense Weapon (PDW), and was designed as a compact but powerful firearm for vehicle drivers, operators of crew-served weapons, support personnel, special forces and anti-terrorist units.
Developed between 1986–1987 by Stéphane Ferrard at Fabrique Nationale de Herstal, the P90 features a compact bullpup design, ambidextrous grip and a polymer and alloy-based construction. The weapon contains several innovative features, including the proprietary 5.7x28mm ammunition.
The P90 and variants are in use by over twenty military and police forces worldwide, and sports models are popular among civilian shooters.

|Quirks:||Weird: The P90's ergonomics are just plain odd for shooters accustomed to more conventional longarms. If a character isn't experienced with the P90, he suffers a -1 penalty to all attacks, and readying or reloading the P90 takes twice as many ticks as normal. These penalties are removed after a "familiarization fire" session of at least 100 rounds, or if the P90 becomes part of the character's personal equipment.
P90:The P90 has no underbarrel accessory rail and cannot accept a folding stock.
