The first purpose built flame-thrower equipped tank that saw service with the German Army during the Second World War was the Flammpanzer II. Built on the chassis of a Panzer II D or E, the design mounted two separately operated flame projectors on the front of each track fender.

Equipment and Notes
Two 1.4cm Flammenwerfer
Flame-thrower, Hull mounted.
Mounting flame-throwers in tanks gives them much greater fuel capacity making them more effective, while the armour ensures that the flame-thrower survives long enough to get close and do its terrible work.
To learn more about Tank Flame-throwers, see page 199 of the rulebook.
Some tanks mount weapons in the front of the hull instead of in a turret to save weight or to make them easier to produce.
A hull-mounted weapon mounted in the front of a vehicle has a 180-degree Field of Fire covering everything in front of a line drawn across the front of the vehicle. If the weapon is mounted at the rear of the vehicle, the Field of Fire covers everything to the rear of a line drawn across the rear of the vehicle.
