Introducing a whole new weapons class to the game will take some discussion. A
flame thrower was mainly an anti-personnel weapon and I think would have little
impact on a tank. The British had their Crocodile flamethrower tank (conversion of
a Churchill tank) at the Normandy landings to burn out bunkers. It towed a trailer
for the combustant. I would imagine, If one were to build a version for our game, a
single hit to the trailer would kill the vehicle. Or at least double damage and
deny the use of the flamethrower.
It would look cool going up to a bunch of infantry and spraying/flaming them down.
Now, if we only had some infantry...
