Vladimir Putin has approved deploying a deadly flamethrower to his private army.

The TOS-1A Solntsepek large thermobaric flamethrower destroys fortifications, armored vehicles, and hostile manpower.

The weapon’s 3,000°C blast temperature may vaporize everything inside a 1,000ft blast radius, rupturing lungs and leaving no possibility of survival.

Retired US Colonel David Johnson called thermobaric munitions “a poor man’s nuclear weapon.”
The deadly ammunition can be dropped or placed into a rocket for artillery.

Now video shows the Wagner Group’s far-right mercenaries using the weapon in Ukraine.

Wagner troops use the artillery variant of the weapon to target Ukrainian forces in Artemovsk and its outskirts, state media reports.

The first explosive charge opens the canister and scatters gasoline as a deadly cloud, creating an incendiary mist that penetrates buildings and defenses.

A second charge detonates the fuel cloud, causing a flame, blast wave, and vacuum that snuffs out nearby oxygen.

The blast or following shock wave can kill victims, while the resulting vacuum ruptures their lungs.

The Russian Defense Ministry TV channel Zvezda recently featured a flamethrower that uses thermobaric bombs, often called vacuum bombs or fuel-air explosives.

Zvezda TV’s 38-minute report said the deadly weapon ‘proved itself’ in Ukraine.

Its warhead was made in a secret lab in Sergiev Posad, Moscow region.

A source informed ultraloyalist news site RIA FAN, ‘These are the world’s most terrible weapons.

The Americans tried to ban it, not because it’s a WMD, but because they can’t do that.

Prigozhin said he wants to build a separate division in Wagner for raped prisoners so other convict troops wouldn’t have to serve with such ‘untouchable pariah.’

He criticized Putin’s regular forces’ performance.
