    Russian Solntsepek flamethrower system used against Ukraine [VIDEO]

    “The Russian Federation uses the heaviest non-nuclear weapons against Ukraine,” Ukrinform informs today. Mykhailo Podolyak, the adviser to the Head of the Office of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, informed on Twitter about the Russian Solntsepek flamethrower system.“

    “This is the Russian Solntsepek flamethrower system. Some partners avoid giving the necessary weapons because of fear of escalation. Escalation, really? RF already uses the heaviest non-nuclear weapons against Ukraine, burning people alive. Maybe it’s time to respond and give us MLRS?” Podolyak posted on Twitter. 




    TOS-1, Heavy Flamethrower System, is a Soviet multiple rocket launcher capable of using thermobaric warheads, mounted on a T-72 tank chassis. TOS-1 was designed to attack enemy fortified positions and lightly armoured vehicles and transports, in open terrain in particular. First combat tests took place in 1988 and 1989 in the Panjshir Valley during the Soviet-Afghan War. The TOS-1 was shown for the first time in public in 1999 in Omsk.
