Flamethrowers are weapons that spew a ragnite based fire in an arc doing light damage to tanks and heavy damage to infantry and fixed weapons. Flamethrowers also ignore cover protection, dealing the same damage whether the unit is standing or crouching, just like grenades although unlike grenades, flamethrowers do not have limited ammo.

OverviewEdit

Infantry FlamethrowersEdit

Gallia, The East Europan Imperial Alliance and the Gallian Revolutionary Army all used flamethrowers that were mounted under the barrel of shocktrooper's machineguns. In both the original game and VCIII, Trooper Elite's can equip them while VCII required a seperate sub-class, the Commando, to wield them at the expense of having no grenades. Infantry Flamethrowers are capable of killing most foot soldiers and fixed weapons in 1 or 2 sprays, this sometimes means its quicker to kill an enemy with the flamethrower than to shoot it, although sometimes a full blast from the trooper's gun will do more damage to a single enemy than a flamethrower.

Vehicle Mounted FlamethrowersEdit

Vehicle mounted flamethrowers exist in all 3 games and were first seen on the Shamrock and are extremely deadly to infantry and fixed weapons wiping even aces in single sprays, only tanks don't take major damage from these flamethrowers. In VCII and VCIII they took a step down becoming a turret for APCs only (unless you wanted a tank with a stupidly small turret). Also, due to having 1 vehicle in VCII and VCIII, there is no longer an option to have a true-tank and a flamethrower tank, you have to make the choice. Most tank flamethrowers are mounted with 7 shot tank MGs for interception fire.

Gallian Flamethrower FF Circa 1935Edit

These weapons emit an intense blaze by igniting a spray of atomized ragnite, and were designed as an attachment to an existing machine gun. Each unit has a liquid ragnite atomizer and a spring-valve reagent spray emitter to ignite it. For the sake of convenience, it uses replaceable pressurized fuel cells. What it lacks in duration, range and stopping power, it easily makes up for in psychological shock value. It takes its name from the nickname its designer gave it, the "Flame Flail."

Gallian Flamethrower FoG Circa 1935Edit

A more lethal version of the FF, the FoG emits a toxic gas byproduct made during ragnite combustion for added damage. The unit's greater size reduced its ease of portability, and the enlarged muzzle meant a greater strain on the wielder when in use. While its ability to emit a large quantity of flame made it useful against trenches and bunkers, that also led to units armed with flamethrowers becoming more frequent targets. Named for the "Flames of Gehenna," its putrid fire made the passing of many a life a very painful endeavor.

Imperial Flamethrower VB FW Circa 1935Edit

This flamethrower attachment was created specifically to combat enemies hidden in trenches and concrete bunkers. Though flamethrowers did exist in EW1, they all took the form of back-mounted ragnite tanks. This form made long-term operation difficult and required the user to stand, making them an easy target for enemy fire. Machine gun-mounted pressurized fuel cells alleviated these issues, allowing users to engage in normal firearm combat until a need for the flamethrower arose.

Imperial Flamethrower VB FW B Circa 1935Edit

The successor to the VB FW. Because of its comparatively simple construction, little about the attachment was changed. The greatest difference lay in the level of refinement in the ragnite atomizing unit and the purity of the fuel itself, which was modified to exhibit a stronger reaction to the igniting agent while simultaneously producing a noxious gas.

Trivia Edit

  • The VB FW's designation probably comes from the German word "Flammenwerfer", meaning flamethrower.
