Traditionnal armourer's skills from over 100 years experience added to innovation, the use of modern technology, and dedication to quality are the distinguishing features of combat-proven products. The design, based on interchangeable modules, and the capability to take a variety of accessories, enable it to meet the present and future requirement of different types of units in a wide range of missions. The conception of the F2000 allows accesories to be added while respecting the ergonomics, balance and the smooth lines of the rifle. Space is provided inside the weapon for a centralized power pack used in the FCS and the proprietary 4x sight, which is also capable of night-vision. The F2000 can be comfortably and safely used left-handed without modification, thanks to the forward ejection, the left-handed shooter is not at risk from cases, gas or debris. The safety and firing selector, the magazine catch, etc,... are easy to manipulate left-handed. The bullpup design gives a very compact rifle with a full-length barrel. Light, with excellent balance (the center of gravity is positioned over the strong hand), and with a smooth outer shape, the F2000 is easy and comfortable to carry; firing selector and magazine catch are easily accessed. Military forces are required to be prepared for more missions than only conventional warfare. Peace keeping, peace making, humanitarian operations, etc... require different capabilities. Within an armed force there is a wide range of units with different needs. The modular design of the F2000 allows the standard rifle to be reconfigured to specific mission requirements: it can mount any standard 4x scope, the proprietary night-day, electrically-powered scope, or a proprietary FCS; the standard handguard can be replaced with another different, integrating a laser beam or a tactical light; under the barrel may also be placed a LG41 grenade launcher or a less-than-lethal FN303 launcher.
