What is the point of a tank suppressor?
Silencers reduce firing recoil significantly, primarily by diverting and trapping the propellant gas.
What is the biggest tank in the world?
The heaviest tank ever constructed was the German Panzerkampfwagen Maus, which weighed 188 tonnes (414,469 lb).
What is the difference between silencer and suppressor?
Some say a silencer is for reducing the sound, while a suppressor is more for eliminating muzzle flash. A suppressor does reduce some of the sound though. The simple answer is both words can be used interchangeably – meaning the terms Silencer and Suppressor refer to the exact same thing.
Can I put a silencer on a revolver?
Generally you cannot suppress a revolver because of the barrel/cylinder gap, too much gas escapes to allow for effective suppression.
How loud is a 155mm howitzer?
According to a US Army Public Health Command report, a 155mm Howitzer can produce 181 decibel blast. That is more than 25 times louder than an average rock concert, while a jet engine takeoff is normally about 150 decibels.

Can a pillow work as a silencer?
Short answer: no. Pillows do a bad job of containing the explosive gases released by a gunshot. Here’s an excellent video demonstrating this with live ammo, different types of pillows and a decibel meter.
Why is it illegal to have a silencer?
New South Wales now allows recreational hunters to use of silencers (sound moderators). In other jurisdictions silencers are prohibited because they are seen as being too dangerous and associated with criminal activity. Sound moderators are a public safety issue.

Do silencers work on pistols?

What’s the purpose of a muffler in a tank?
The general idea of this type of muffler is to expand the propellant gases into an appropriate tank and store the gas there until pressure and motion are low enough that they can leave the tank in a steady subsonic flow into the surrounding air.
Do you have to have a muffler in your car?
By their nature, mufflers restrict exhaust flow or create back pressure, which slightly slows down your engine. However, it is required by law to have a muffler within your vehicle, so some high-octane drivers will have to live with driving a vehicle with a muffler.
