Historical presentation of the FN P90
The P90 is a defensive weapon designed by the Belgian firearms manufacturer FN Herstal in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The name of the weapon comes from the abbreviation of Project 9.0, which refers to a weapon system of the 1990s. The P90 was originally designed as a compact, yet powerful firearm for vehicle operators, support personnel, special forces and anti-terrorist units.
By 2003, 17,000 P90s were in use by military and police forces in more than 25 countries around the world. In 2009, the P90 and its variants were used by more than 200 law enforcement agencies in the United States. The PS90 sport model is also becoming popular with civilian users.
