Russian heavy flamethrower systems TOS-1 "Pinocchio" and TOS-1A "Solntsepek" can hit targets that are in shelters. The advantages of Russian-made heavy flamethrower systems were called by 19FortyFive columnist Brent Eastwood.

Eastwood noted that "Solntsepek" and "Pinocchio" use shells with a thermobaric composition. The impact of the flamethrower system leads to the formation of a combustible cloud that can penetrate into shelters. Also, the TOS-1 and TOS-1A differ in mobility, which is caused by the use of a tank chassis.

The publication 19FortyFive emphasized that heavy flamethrower systems received a fire control system with a ballistic computer and a laser rangefinder. After entering the firing position, the crew needs 90 seconds to prepare for firing.

In October, Eastwood wrote about the need to create regulations to ban the use of heavy flamethrower systems. In the material for 19FortyFive, he noted that the TOS-1 "Pinocchio" system can receive target data using a drone.

In September, the publication The National Interest noted the capabilities of the Tosochka heavy flamethrower system TOS-2. Columnist Sebastien Roblin said that the Russian system could become a threat to US tanks.

"В октябре Иствуд написал о необходимости создания норм по запрету на использование тяжелых огнеметных систем." Как они пытаются всё диктовать нам. Следующий шаг запретить гиперзвук. а затем и Армию России. Сладкие горбачёвские годы предательства закончились. Не дождётесь.
