Remembered Today:

German flamethrowers

Recommended Posts

This is my first post here. Hi all!

I would like to see some clear images or drawings of German flamethrowers, more specifically, the so - called "small flamethrower" types, which required a 2-man team. I think there were two types in use, one with a bottle-shaped tank, and one with a doughnut-shaped tank.

This is needed for a figure modelling project, so I need clear views of fittings, etc.

Welcome to the forum Daniel.

There have been couple of previous threads on flammenwerfer but very little in the way of illustrations.

This one (assuming I have posted it correctly)


Has a drawing and photo and also a reference to a book which you may be able to get from your library.

Good luck with your project. I am sure we would be interested to see some pictures of it when it is finished.

Hi Daniel

Ther are examples of the German man pack flamethrowers in the Imperial War Museum reserve collection at Duxford, you need to make an apppointment to view them though.

Thank you all... the Reserve Collection suggestion is not practical for me, unfortunately, I do not anticipate a visit to the UK for the time being... ;)
