The stand dedicated to weapons attracted the most visitors, as they could be tested, and those interested received the most detailed technical information directly from the specialists of the Cugir Weapons Factory or the Cugir Mechanical Plant, the manufacturing subsidiaries.
The weapons on display were mainly targeted at the military, such as the assault rifle, the semi-automatic rifle, the AKM assault rifle, the sniper rifle, the tripod machine gun, the light machine gun or the 14.5×114 mm machine gun on a T119 multi-purpose mount, but there were also some items dedicated to the civilian market, such as pistols or semi-automatic rifles.
Products developed by the Carfil subsidiary were exhibited in a wide variety of calibers, from thermobaric round, antitank grenade launcher AG-7 DS, HE mortar steel bomb with impact SQ fuze Junghans, to launcher systems such as Comando, AG-7DS or Multiple launcher with fire control system “Hydra”.
