Correct way to pronounce FAMAS?

I say "Fah(like 'fat' without the t)-miss". But since it's a french gun I'm guessing I'm wrong.
Not changing this until tomorrow.

You say "FAH-MAHS", and it means Fusil d'Assaut de la Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Etienne.
*is French* :p

This was a huge debate on the MGS1 forums a long time ago, lol.

The correct pronunciation is FAH-MAHS.

FAH as in "FAH-Q", if that helps, since I know everyone is familiar with the term.
