Fafnir Heavy Flamethrower:

Barrel Length: 4.82 meters
Fuel: Napalm
Effective Range: 70 meters
Maximum Range: 120 meters
Fuel Feed System: Pressurized fuel is pumped from the fuel reservoirs into the barrel. A small pilot flame located in the inside of the barrel ignites the pressurized napalm as it exits the gun barrel.
Primary Usage: The Fafnir is particularly effective against infantry in both entrenched or open positions. The flamethrower can be effective against armoured vehicles if the napalm can flow into open hatches, vision ports, or penetrated sections of armour.

Optional Equipment:

- Type 2 Dozer Blade
- Upgraded Command and Control Electronics System
