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...
