TOS-1A “Heavy Flame Thrower” Used Against Rebels In Syria

first published on October 23, 2015 by

Christmas came early this year for Syrian president Assad in the form of shiny new TOS-1A Heavy Flame Throwers gifted from Russian president Putin. Assad wasted no time in putting them to work and demonstrating their capabilities against rebel groups in Latakia.


The TOS-1A isn’t your typical multiple launch rocket system. Often mounted on a T-72A main battle tank chassis, and firing incendiary and thermobaric (fuel-air) warheads, these munitions can make short work of infantry, vehicles, and even the occupants of deep, fortified bunkers.
