Writing: Sharp Blade and Fire
The Second World War is the largest catastrophe in human history, and it is also the largest war in human history. The warring parties used more than 100 million The military battles. In the vast Pacific Ocean, Japan and the United States have also launched a nearly four-year war since the Pearl Harbor incident, including island-capture battles, air battles, and naval battles. Japanese soldiers sitting in fighter jet cabins or ships It may never be possible to imagine the "Kiyoshima artifact" of the American horror that the Japanese Army faces, and that is the flamethrower.
A US soldier is using a flamethrower
The flamethrower actually appeared in the First World War. In the anxious trench battle in Europe, the flamethrower can quickly clear an infantry pothole, but in mainstream wars The method is that the flamethrower was widely used in the armored sports warfare during World War II. Especially in the Japanese-US battlefield, the flamethrower became the "most feared nightmare" of Japanese soldiers.
Usually, the old-fashioned flame The ejector consists of a backpack and a flame gun (referring to the flamethrower in the two world wars). The backpack is generally composed of 3 tanks, one of which is high-pressure inert gas for propulsion, and the other two tanks are filled with flammable Liquid.
The appearance of the M2A1 flamethrower
The M2 flamethrower widely used by the United States in World War II was the M2 flamethrower. If the flamethrower is "full on", it can only spray for about 47 seconds, and the effective killing range is only 30 meters. Although all walks of life in the United States have strongly opposed the existence of such weapons for a period of timeHowever, because Japanese soldiers often hid in tunnels or bushes dug on the islands and attacked the U.S. forces, the undefeated U.S. military could only use flamethrowers to clean up the battlefield to ensure that every corner was sprayed with hot gasoline. In addition, the flamethrower can also play a miraculous effect when attacking the Japanese bunker.
German soldiers are manipulating large flamethrowers
The Japanese army hates American flamethrowers (or fire-throwers for short), and fire-throwers are often the priority target of the Japanese army on the battlefield. However, the flamethrower’s powerful psychological deterrence against the enemy and its amazing lethality still made the Japanese very terrified, because once it is hit by the flammable liquid stream from the flamethrower, the highly adhesive fuel will be "attached" Like "maggots of bones", they will be burned to death by those who hit them alive, and they will die extremely miserably. It is precisely because of the great threat of flamethrowers that flamethrowers rarely become captured. Generally, if the flamethrower is captured, the Japanese will shoot the flamethrower on the spot for revenge and revenge. Whether the fire soldiers actually burned to death the enemy soldiers.
The reason why the flamethrower is the best weapon against Japanese bunkers and bunkers on the Pacific battlefield is mainly because the fuel of the M2 flamethrower has been improved and the fluidity of the fuel is fully guaranteed.As a result, once the stream of flame is shot into the bunker, every dead corner of the shooting will be "cared for", so it is no exaggeration to say that the flamethrower was the "biggest nightmare" of the Japanese army in World War II.

Interestingly, the flamethrower on the flamethrower is often seen in Hollywood moviesThe "spectacular scene" of a bomb hit by a bullet and a direct explosion, but after actual feedback and testing on the battlefield, the high-pressure inert gas in the tank can effectively ensure the safety of the fire fighters, and the fuel will hardly be ignited unless the enemy forces Used incendiary bombs.

Even after World War II, various flamethrowers based on the M2 flamethrower have been used by various countries for a long time. Even the Japanese Self-Defense Forces have used the M2 flamethrower that they hated for a long time.
