Swedish Ordnance developed a family of flash hiders for Heavy Machine Guns (HMGs) like the Browning M2, NSV, and DShK-M that "reduce muzzle flash to near nothing." The firm's Director, Per-Inge Nilsson, noted that their flash hiders - called FH1401-1403 - can be used even when low-cost surplus ammunition is being used. The device can easily be installed and removed within seconds, he said, for which the company developed a unique fixation method. The HMG shown in Nuremberg outfitted with the FH1401 also featured Saab's weapon recoil technology widely found on pintle mounts and Remote Weapon Stations (RWS).
