The Forte VD.01[2](often called Danuvia VD-01) is a machine pistol manufactured, for a short time, by Danuvia Engineering Industries from 1990. In 1998, the rights to manufacture have been sold to Intermodul Weapon Shops.[1] The gun has gained some international attention as an oddity due to the unorthodox appearance and helical magazine.[2]
