Flamethrower
A flamethrower is a mechanical incendiary device designed to project a long, controllable stream of fire. They were first used by the Greeks in the 1st century AD. In modern times, they were used during World War I, and more widely in World War II. Some flamethrowers project a stream of ignited flammable liquid while some project a long gas flame. Most military flamethrowers use liquids, but commercial flamethrowers tend to use high-pressure propane and natural gas, which is considered safer as they both die out faster and are easier to put out. In comparison, a liquid flamethrower's fuel sticks to its targets and is mostly oil based and thus harder to put out with water
