Small arms engagements are chaotic, fast-paced, and very loud. In these situations, the ability to properly employ a crew-served weapon to achieve fire superiority can literally make the difference between life and death. However, crew-served weapons also intrinsically draw more attention from the enemy. They also deafen the weapon's crew. Given these circumstances, the employment of a suppressor on a light or medium machine-gun provides both a tactical and performance advantage.
As the flash and noise signature of the weapon are dramatically reduced, a suppressor allows the crew to remain better concealed, and draw less attention on the battlefield. Additionally, the suppressor not only reduces recoil and muzzle rise, allowing both more accurate cyclic and sustained fire; but the deafening roar of the weapon is also tamed, allowing better operator performance and communication, along with improved situational awareness.
SAI has worked hand-in-hand with a variety of manufacturers and countries' militaries developing suppressors to enhance the performance and lethality of their particular weapon platform. Like the M80 suppressor line, these suppressors are battle proven, as they have passed the ultimate test of a weapon system: troops-in-contact.
