Abstract:

This is a translation of a report that summarized the experimental work done in Germany up to about the year 1945 in the field of muzzle flash suppression. The experiments used real gun systems and employed a large number of different chemical additives as potential suppressants. Negative, as well as positive, results were reported. A brief discussion on rocket afterburning suppression and smoke attenuation was also given.
