DIRLEWANGER (FLAMETHROWER 1944 c.) - German Forces | Gallery



This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.ww2incolor.com/gallery/german-forces/39152/dirlewanger-(flamethrower-1944-c.)

The soldier on the right has a Flammenwerfer 41. The top tank was filled with nitrogen and the lower one contained the fuel oil.

I saw the Flammenwerfer on the Deadliest Warrior SS vs Viet Cong - would not want to be hit with that! (I know - great source!!)
I think I have seen this photo in a book where it said the particular Flammenwerfer carried by this trooper is a one shot ‘disposable’ model, intended for home defence mass production, and use with minimal training.

Actually Nordland for most of it’s history all of Dirlewanger were criminals that was kind of the point.
