Among the products exhibited at SOFINS 2021...
VCD 15 in .300 AAC: Verney-Carron's VCD15 assault rifle, initially offered in 5.56mm, now includes a version in .300 AAC. The .300 AAC Blackout was designed to obtain a caliber with increased lethality, even in subsonic firing on an AR15 type platform.
VCS Mini 40: the Mini 40 launcher is a small size launcher capable of projecting any type of ammunition in 40mm, from non-lethal to explosive ordnance. The launcher was developed with the GIGN, so as to be the most operational possible and, in particular, has an ultra-compact format allowing it to be taken everywhere without impacting the user's mobility.
VCD 10 and VCD 9: Verney-Carron's VCD 10 semi-automatic sniper rifle is now available in 7.62 × 39mm, 280 Rem, and 6.5 Creedmore. Verney-Carron has also developed a 9mm version, the VCD 9, compatible with Uzi-type loaders.
