The Crocodile was a very successful flamerthrower tank. Unlike the original flame tanks, the Crocodile did not lose it's main arnament and could also engage armoured targets. The flame fuel was carried in a trailor pulled by the tank, and this could be detached by the crew at will if deemed neccassary. The flamethrower itself replaced the hull machine gun. (this is just a picture of a model, not the real thing) Churchill%20Crocodile_Melvin.jpg We should have a few of these in some of the later British maps to replace some other tanks. They would toast through infantry better than normal tanks, and Britain needs a couple good vehicles. You could leave the trailor out or show it with the newly developed towed arty-based code. It might even be possible to have the trailer be a weak spot and explode violently if shot, or to make altfire for the seat 2 flamethrower detach the trailor and disable the flame thrower.

The molotovs and the infantry carrying a flamethrower is enough fire for me. as Blistex said it would cause even more lag and my computer lags like hell as it is now :D

Maybe we can have some decent flame effects once FH switches to BF: Vietnam (*high hopes when he looks at Napalm)...
