The new stealth infantry: How suppressors will change battlefield tactics | MilitaryTimes

Two squads of infantryman approach an enemy position, one from each side. The commander orders the squad on the enemy’s right flank to attack.

Rifles and machine guns open fire.

The cacophony of the firefight pulls the enemy in that direction as they return fire.

Meanwhile, the second squad charges the opposite flank, sound suppressors ­attached to their rifles and machine guns. They begin shooting.

The enemy commander has no idea he’s taking casualties on that side until it’s too late. His position is overrun. His unit is wiped out.
