Sorry, couldn't resist. :lol:

About incendiary weapons, at least from what I could gather on Wikipedia, it was mainly the USA and USSR that were the main users during the game's period, so either the other countries didn't use them, either it was on a limited scale.

Well, as I said, I cannot speak for the other nations, but Germany (both Germanies actually) had a lot of them...

Here is my favourite vid on that: G-91, F-4, and Starfighters attacking with Feuerbomben (=Napalm)

I've actually taken to dropping napalm behind enemy infantry positions as I attack, especially on maps like Copenhagen or Fjord where there's a lot of city to retreat to - this interdicts their retreat and reinforcement routes and allow me to pound them myself with tanks, as the LOS-blocking of the fire cuts off supporting fire from their rear.

the french army was keeping their stockpile ready. In fact we were one of the army that theorized the use of napalm in war. and the army that keep their flamethrower the longer time.

BTW anyone noticed that both Zippo can fire flamethrower on the move? Unlike flame T-55 and T-62 they don't have [STAT] on falmethrower. Probably bug?

Probably that you don't check your sources before your daily rant? :twisted:
Maybe you should check the TO-55 & TO-62 again ...

All flame tanks had their STAT requirement removed.
