A Flamer is potent incendiary weapon mounted on several Battle Armor designs, although it has more in common with vehicular flamethrowers than 'Mech-based Flamers. Lacking a fusion engine from which to draw plasma means a reservoir of combustible fuel must be carried to achieve the same effect. While smaller in size this Flamer is no less deadly than its larger cousins.[2]
