To those that have used this apparatus in combat, besides the dangers, what was the upside to it? Would you have chucked it if given the opportunity?

This is a little off subject but dont they have newer stuff like the fuel air grenades and stuff i read a little about the russians using them in chechniya. why pack a flame thrower when I got a rpg round that will do even more firey damage.

Well i do know the russians has these rocket launchers with T-72 chassis's that fire huge rockets that turn entire buildings into inferno. They worked well in grozny.

Now days we have a large range of weapons for removing bunkers and other things flame throwers are designed to encounter.

Yep, the enemy doesn't get sleepytime nappies - they get killed. Unless you can get armies to use blowguns with lethal injection darts, it's always gonna hurt. The flamethrower was effective in its day. There's just better stuff to accomplish its task now.
