Flame-thrower team

Flame-thrower Company (SU804)

Flame-thrower teams consisted of both flame throwers and a particularly effective but dangerous habit of placing several grenades within a knapsack to be thrown on, into or under German armour, bunkers, or defensive positions.

Mortality within these units was high even for the Soviets but there are many stories of Heroes of the Soviet Union who gave their lives diving under German Panzers with a knapsack full of grenades. 

Flame-thrower Company (GE804)
The pack contains four Flame-thrower teams in Sapper Body Armour.

In Flames Of War

As a Weapons Platoon of the Inzhenerno-Saperniy Batalon (Engineer-Sapper Battalion) in River Of Heroes the Flame-thrower Company allocates its Flame-thrower teams out to the Engineer-Sapper Companies.

Flames-thrower Companies must make Combat attachments to Engineer-Sapper Companies with all of their sections.

As an exception to the normal Combat Attachment rule, the Flame-thrower Sections become part of the Engineer-Sapper Company for all Platoon Morale Checks (see page 184 of the rulebook).

Flames-throwers are ideal for pinning down the enemy before your assault sappers go in for the assault.
