Flame Throwers

The two most used were the Mod.35 and the Mod.40, both shoulder mounted flamethrowers.

The Mod.35: This flamethrower weighed approximately 27 kg, and had 12 kg of incendiary liquid and 6 liters of propellant. Range was about 20 meters, and the area of coverage was of 35×15 meters. About 20 “salvos” could be fired.

The Mod.40: About the same as the Mod.35 but was started with an electric turbine.
