Abstract:

Two basic approaches were selected for advancing the state-of-the-art of longer range portable flamethrowers. These methods include the multi shot liquid propellant-actuated recoil-compensated flamethrower and the single-shot solid propellant-actuated recoil-compensated flamethrower. The factors influencing the selection of the liquid flamethrower system, design studies leading to the selection, and the experimental results of this phase of the program are discussed.
