The Truvelo ‘Counter Measure Sniper’ (CMS) series was developed for urban type warfare at a shorter range. The rifles are compact and allow for easy manoeuvrability. The stock is foldable and the rifle lighter which makes it easier to carry in confined areas.

The 20x42 mm CMS was designed from inception to be a lightweight, easily transportable anti-material rifle. A flat trajectory ensures target engagement not easily achievable with a LV/MV 40 mm grenade launcher. The compact size of the weapon system (the barrel length is only 380 mm) makes it ideal for parachute deployments into hostile territories, yet capable of eliminating hard targets such as communication towers, missile emplacements, as well as armoured vehicles. The 20x42 mm ammunition, although being sub-sonic, has an effectective range of 1000m. t is capable of delivering a devastating payload due to the variety of ammunition available, from PRAC rounds all the way to the highly specialised SAPHEI version.
