The Vehicle Flamer performs the same as a 'Mech-mounted Flamer, venting superheated gases at a target to cause it to overheat/burn up. As most non-'Mech combat units lack expensive nuclear fusion reactors, Vehicle Flamers instead draw from a pool of combusting "ammunition" and use that to generate the stream of hot gas. Vehicle flamers can also be used for other purposes depending on the fluid stored, such as fire suppression, or in the arenas of Solaris VII fire acid, paints, and oils.
