    Historical Notes

    During World War II, every major combatant developed some form of “flame tank”, featuring a flame thrower weapon. Though these weapons were too short ranged for effective use on an open battlefield, they were devastating to enemy morale and very effective in close quarters or against fortified positions. But, as infantry anti-armor weapons improved late in the war, this tank variant gradually became obsolete.

    The German army produced a number of flame thrower tank variants, known as Flammpanzers. One such design was built on the proven chassis of the Panzer III (or Pz. Kpfw. III). The normal tank gun from the Panzer III was replaced by an oversized flamethrower, similar to those used by infantry units. Because it was mounted on a vehicle, however, the Flammpanzer’s weapon had much better range and carried a lot more fuel, making it a terrifying weapon for infantry in fortifications.
