The Weapons Factory of Cugir has recently concluded an agreement for the delivery or light armament to a NATO member state, that will double its activity this year, Economy Minister Varujan Vosganian said yesterday, according to Mediafax. ‘It is light armament that is generally not meant to caress. Light armament means shotguns, pistols and automatic firearms’, the minister told a press conference. He did not disclose any further information on the new contract, but did note that the armament producer had posted RON 11 M turnover for 2012. The Cugir armament factory made the first assault firearm of fully Romanian conception at NATO standard last spring. The gun is now being tested by Romanian soldiers in theatres of operations.
