The 5.7×28mm cartridge was designed in response to NATO requests for a replacement for the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge.[10][20] According to the NATO requirement, the new cartridge was to have greater range, accuracy, and terminal performance than the 9×19mm cartridge.[21] Additionally, it was to be capable of penetrating body armor.[21] FN Herstal responded to the NATO requirement by developing the 5.7×28mm cartridge and two associated weapons: the FN P90 personal defense weapon (PDW) and FN Five-seven pistol.[20]

The original 5.7×28mm cartridge, called the SS90, was introduced in 1990.[20] It used a 1.5 gram (23 grain) plastic-core projectile, which was propelled at a muzzle velocity of roughly 850 m/s (2,800 ft/s or Mach 2.5) when fired from the P90.[20] A United States patent application for the projectile design used in the SS90 was filed by FN’s Jean-Paul Denis and Marc Neuforge in 1989.[4] U.S. Patent 5,012,743 (“High-Performance Projectile”) was received in 1991.[6][22]
