Well maybe the flamethrower, instead of large tanks strapped to the back. It coould be loaded with cans that hold fuel inside them. And there would be a compartment that they would be loaded in. Such like one in this picture.



So less likely to get blown up.

Well, if the flame thrower has a machine that draws the fuel from the oxygen from the surrounding gas and shoots it, It would be the best weapon!

That is from Red Faction.

I liked the Deus Ex flamethrower, basically just a pump with a can of napalm on it.

Better yet, I think that the RPO has the only practical application on the modern battlefield. A recoiless flame "thrower".
It is essentially a unguided rocket launcher that fires a rocket with a "napalm" like charge.

Those people in the Australian Army who have done Musorian Of Ops will know of this weapon.

In my opinion the main reason why the army abandoned flamethrowers is becouse they were a hazard to the person operating it and the people around it. A single bullet hit could cause it to explode. When incendiaries are needed (like taking out a bunker for example) the U.S. Army relies on the air force for such jobs. They could use napalm or even bunker busters.
There are also economic reasons that the army isnt using flame throwers.
We are running out of petrolium and there are better uses for it other than as weapons

Are incendiary grenades (usually used in an anti-material role) powerful enough to be useful in clearing bunkers?
