Description[edit]

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.

Models[edit]

The Vehicle Flamer is manufactured on the following planets:

Brand Planet Company
Dragon's Breath Luthien Buda Imperial Vehicles
Flame Tech K-135 Fletcher Flame Tech
