Russian Army to Receive Advanced Flame Weapons
The flame units of Russia’s NBC Defence Troops are due to receive advanced flame weapons. This information was presented by Head of the NBC Defence Troops Maj. Gen. Eduard Cherkasov on Thursday.
“For the future, we are creating special ammunition that will hit highly secure defence constructions. The infantry flame units will receive new weaponry with higher fire precision and penetration before exploding effect, ability to destroy fortified emplacements, armored equipment, and personnel in trenches,” Mr. Cherkasov said, noting that the efficiency of flame weapons would increase significantly.
“Flame weapons are very efficient in close combat and have not only physically destructive but also psychological effect on an enemy. The application of flame weapons is one of the tasks performed by the NBC Defence Troops in the interests of fire damage,” Mr. Cherkasov pointed out.
