New Russian flamethrower tank destroys everything within 200 meters of target - video

The Buratino (TOS-1) heavy flamethrower system has been used in military exercises for the first time, at a site in Russia's Eastern Military District. The military announced that the Buratino had successfully destroyed all targets.

In late March, a battalion of Moscow’s Radiation, Chemical, and Biological Defense Troops stormed a simulated enemy position in eastern Russia — armed with upgraded shoulder-fired and vehicle-launched thermobaric weapons. In a video from news agency RIA Novosti, shown above, the launchers are seen hurling 24 220-millimeter unguided thermobaric rockets at a time.

Just before reaching their targets, the rockets released a mixture of combustible gas. Within seconds, the gas is ignited, and “all living things within 300 square meters are destroyed by high pressure and temperature,” RIA Novosti observed.
