Heavy flamethrower systems on the wheeled chassis of the TOS-2 "Tosochka" are ready for final tests. They will begin in August and will last until the end of the year, after which a decision will be made on the supply of new weapons to the troops.

For the first time, these flamethrowers were presented at the 75th anniversary Victory Parade last year. Due to the unique maneuverability and speed, the vehicles can make fast marches for hundreds of kilometers, and powerful thermobaric ammunition can burn thousands of hectares of terrain in a few minutes. 

According to experts, powerful shock systems on a wheeled chassis are well suited for the conditions of the Middle East, the southern borders of Russia and other regions.

As sources in the military department told Izvestia, the Ministry of Defense agreed on the terms and conditions for testing the latest heavy flamethrower systems TOS-2 "Tosochka". From August, the capabilities of the machine will begin to be checked. In addition to the polygons ,the "wheeled flamethrower" will be tested in the troops, including during large-scale maneuvers.

In February of this year, the Rostec state Corporation announced that its subsidiaries had started preparing Tosochka for state tests. And in June, the general director of Technodinamika JSC, Igor Nasenkov, said that according to the plan, the system should be tested before the end of the year, after which a decision will be made on its commissioning.
