There is also the flash suppressor, which mainly reduces muzzle flame and can be confused with muzzle brake.

Did a bit of lookaround. In English context, “silencer” and “suppressor” both refer to sound-reducing muzzle device. The recoil compensator is called “muzzle brake”.
But in Chinese language, “suppressor” is often referred to as muzzle brake so I got confused as well.

Hey, I don’t know if this question should goes here, but does anyone know if the silver thing on Anton Chigurh’s Remington 1187 is a silencer or suppressor? *I am still new to guns!*

Because of the diversity of terrain, there are many places in the world where tanks and armed vehicles cannot reach, and where calvaries can still be useful, at least in patrol.
Here’s a PLA calvary lieutenant with a 95 Carbine.

To not mention that the ones supposed to use these kind of weaponry are, as far as I read; Kim Jong Un’s personal guards and special forces, both of which seem really bad to have a jam in the first place.
But at least it seems decently workable. I’m not sure if the same can be said about their ‘Anti Tank Grenade Launcher/AT Rifle’:



Rifle grenade appeared in WW1, pioneered by the Brits. Then in WW2 the Japs used it in large scale. And now Japs are also using it as an anti-tank weapon.
The concept became obsolete when RPG and M72 LAW came out. They are easier to load. And if you have to fire grenade with a rifle, there are under-barrel grenade launchers like the M203.

As in, penetrate the armor, set s fuze and explode inside
Wikipedia article I linked has an explanation: the shells measure travelled distance by counting their rotations and explode when reaching the desired distance. They don’t directly sense the obstacles.
That is ingenius. And in modern warfare, the sniper may be guided by drones or radar to point at the target direction. And the rifle automatically programs the shell with information provided by radar/drones/satellite via the command center server. This particular project may not succeed bur smart firearms are now becoming a thing.

To fire through cover, you would need a much bigger gun.
how you’d fire at a enemy in cover without the system accidentally picking a tree or a wall and exploding prematurely

OH

I’m so sorry my man I beg your pardon, I didn’t open your page and immediately assumed you were talking about the Barrett XM109 or the XM307 Advanced Crew Served Weapon (ACSW). I’m so sorry man, I admit I was at fault, didn’t open the Wikipedia link Dx
Yep, the Denel Systems would be the Neopup (cute name) PAW-20, I think, unless you mean the Denel NTW-20

The Ukrainians are also developing the RGSh-30 grenade launcher

Wouldn’t something like old tank shells work?
As in, penetrate the armor, set s fuze and explode inside
So instead of firing above the cover, you fire the cover so it sets the fuze off
Otherwise I wouldn’t know how you’d fire at a enemy in cover without the system accidentally picking a tree or a wall and exploding prematurely, instead of detecting the sandbags deep in the alleyway

And grenade has a large blast radius anyway.
The point is that you don’t have to wait for the enemy to peek or otherwise become visible. The enemy can’t just hide from you behind cover, they have to run away outside your range of fire.

It’s basically a more precise grenade launcher, so at a distance you can still target individual enemies or targets like trenches or windows, instead of just being able to hit an area where the enemies are.
US had a cooler idea - the XM25 - where the grenades were programmable, so they could explode after passing near an obstacle to hit enemies behind that obstacle. It had issues though and funding was cut.

@RD4590
What would justify the use of this?
Which situation would require both a Sniper Rifle and Grenade Launcher to be simultaneously needed in the same weapon?

To be fair helical magazines like these get jammed frequently. The Calico and PP-19 Bizon are examples. I do get that they do have more ammo but seems very impractical. Also the gun seems overly forward-heavy with that magazine, though I presume it has a folding stock.
