The other advantage of a supressor is than that hide the usual visible firing signature, useful in particulary at night : http://community.webshots.com/s/image3/7/63/42/12376342wZyiHMbxXr_ph.jpg|
And it's much better to aim, without be half-blinded each time u press the trigger (by instence with NVG).
Even if the majority of firearms make rarely a huge muzzle flash as in action movies, but smoke. However, that depend of the weapon used, some as the HK 51k, or Desert Eagle .50AE have a nice effect, it's kind of ring of fire after initial muzzle flash :

Seems than high caliber firearms with short barrel produces a great muzzleflash.
Death is just the beginning ...
