Tank Flame-throwers
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.

Hull-mounted
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.
