Homemade Flamethrowers

A flamethrower is a mechanical device designed to project a long controllable stream of fire.

Some flamethrowers project a stream of ignited flammable liquid; some project a long gas flame. Flamethrowers commonly use a gelled fuel with properties that include: stickiness, long burn-time and high flammability. Compressed gas, often nitrogen, CO2 or in improvised cases, air is used to propel the fuel out in a stream from the flamethrower nozzle.

The improvised flamethrowers in this category can be built out of common materials available “around the house”. Included are flamethrower plans for compact models as well as full scale vehicle mounted flame throwers capable of taking on a small army.
