Historical Description Edit

Early flamethrowers were used aboard naval ships during the Classical Age, where a pump was used to spay Greek Fire. The first man-portable modern flamethrower were invented around 1901 before WW1. They were consisted of two tanks (one filled with flammable oil, the other with pressurized gas), a rubber tube with an igniting device and a lever to control the flow. By WW2 flamethrowers saw extensive use, most notably in clearing entrenched positions like bunkers.
