The HK MP5N is yet another variant of the highly successful series of West German submachine guns following the MP5 pattern. The 'N' designator marks it as "Navy" to become the specialized Navy Model of the MP5 line developed specifically for use by the United States Navy (USN). The weapon has since been taken on by other operators around the world including Malaysia.

The Navy Model features a specialized "Navy trigger system", threaded barrel for support of suppressors / silencers, a retractable shoulder stock for compact-carry and fixed front titanium sights. The MP5N can be fitted with a specially-designed stainless steel waterproof silencer for close-in clandestine work.

Many of the functionality and general qualities found in the MP5 series are retained in the N model including selective-fire (safety and full-automatic modes), an angled handguard covering most of the barrel's length, oversized trigger ring for use by a gloved hand and slim, curved magazines available in 15- or 30-round cartridge counts. Rate-of-fire is 800 rounds-per-minute.
