Battlefront features Flamethrower Platoon (winter) for Flames of War

Battlefront is featuring their Flamethrower Platoon (winter) for Flames of War over on their website.
I'm guessing these guys were popular in those long, cold nights.


From the article:

The ROKS-2 was a man-packed flame-thrower used by the Red Army throughout the duration of the Second World War. It had a unique design feature in the fact that the man carry it was meant to resemble the rest of his comrades in arms.

The fuel tank was designed to resemble a regular rucksack and the flame projector itself the standard military rifle of the Red Army, the Mosin–Nagant 91/30. It was theorised that in the heat of battle the enemy would not be drawn to it until it could be brought to bear.
