by Thomas Ford

The US Marine Corps (USMC) has begun the widespread distribution of suppressors to equip all of its close combat units, the Marine CorpsTimes noted in a 30 December 2020 article.

The suppressors are intended for the M27 IAR, M4, M4A1, and M38 rifles currently in use. This follows the experimental issuing of suppressors to battalion-level formations in order to establish viability and ensure that using the suppressors achieves the desired effects and improved mission capabilities.
