After playing Call of Duty 5 and Far Cry 2 it's evidant how useful and devastating the flame thrower is. So why do they not have flame throwers in the forces these days? Surely letting out a burst of flames into a building occupied by the Taliban would be better than running in and spraying bullets. They used Flame throwers in world war 2 and in nam so why don't we have a flame thrower platoon for today's wars??
