Question ID Help req.

Hello, everybody.

I have been asked to ID this grenade launcher, they told me it's Croatian, yet I know s**t about it. It was not at any gun show I've been lately. Can anybody give help? THNX!

It is standalone version of Croatian grenade launcher cal. 40 mm named VHS-BG (Bacac Granata) or VHS-GL, unveiled by HS Produkt company at ASDA 2011 show in March.

Militaryphotos and Firearmblog have more photos of new versions of VHS rifle and this grenade launcher.

I am afraid there is any confirmation of the name "VHS-BG" or "VHS-GL" in any trusted source (brochure, manufacturer website) so far. So, it is just your proposal, not a real name.

By the way, PT, the 40-mm (40 mm x 46SR) Croatian grenade lanucher it is modular design, so it can be attached to the VHS-D assault rifle or to the stock in stand alone version.

So far, not. Only official HS Produkt information from ASDA that they worked on new assault rifle, called VHS2, which fit left- and right-handed soldiers. The problem is that designer of the VHS rifle is now in big trouble, accused of corruption.
