I recently emailed Battlefront with some replacement requests for broken and missing pieces. I photographed the broken pieces, one of which I wasn't sure what it was. It looked like a dude carrying a rather over sized land mine on his back, but his gun was stumpy and 'obviously' broken.
Imagine my surprise when my replacements arrived, and th two mine carrying dudeds were identically broken.
I decided to photograph them all together to email to Battlefront when I noticed that they all had tubes running from the 'mine' to the end of the 'broken' gun.
That looks like some crazy donut shaped flamethrower I though to my self. But surely not, I'd seen nothing like it before.
Google was the answer.
The Flamethrower, Portable, No.2 (nicknamed "Lifebuoy" from the shape of the fuel tank, and not after the popular brand of soap), was a British design of flamethrower for infantry use and was used extensively in the Second World War.
Ooops, sorry Battlefront, honest mistake. Now I'm gonna have to look at D Minus 1 to see if I can find a use for 3 flamethower dudes.
