Applied by:

Every unit can apply a specific amount of suppression by shooting at a unit. Enduring too much gunfire, especially gunfire from machine gunners and heavy machine guns, will suppress units. The best units to cause suppression are machine gunners, the heavy machine gun and machine gun bunker.

Negated by:

The effect gets negated once units are ordered to retreat, when the ability Battle cry (which most infantry squads have) is activated or the source of the suppression is taken down.
