Anyone actually use these things? I find flame tanks to either be too slow in the case of the Crocodile or too thinly armoured in the case of Flame Panzer. In a defensive situation I find them to be ok, especially the Croc since it has a thick skin. I find that in PBEM the best flame weapon is definitely the German flame rocket launcher, I don't know how prevalent it was but I have seen it being used by quite a few players, awesome at making tanks button up or flee even if they don't take casualties.

The Valentine flame-thrower was only a development model - same as the Valentine DD was only for proof of concepts.

I had great success with a Flame version of the KV (I believe the date was 11/41.) I used it in a battle in Stalingrad and it was nice enough to take out the PzIIIs that it ran up against, had great armour and was able to desimate the infantry. Granted that was on a smaller map, so the speed was not a huge issue.

The Russians also outfitted a modified T34/76, I believe, that had grood speed, a 76mm gun and decient armor. I remember it being available at about the same time. Maybe I'll look it up when I get home.
