Description

The M202 FLASH (Flame Assault Shoulder Weapon) is an American rocket launcher, designed to replace the World War II-vintage flamethrowers (such as the M1 and the M2) that remained the military's standard incendiary devices well into the 1960s. The M202 is based on the prototype XM191 napalm rocket launcher that saw extensive testing in the Vietnam War.

Essentially it's a 4 shot incendiary rocket launcher used by the US Army. It would be a really unique and useful weapon to have in Arma 2.
Here is an old, but relevant, video explaining the FLASH: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkFU7o3IAaM
It is still seeing use in Afghanistan today.

History

Updated by Lazyman almost 5 years ago

It's currently being used, it's a dedicated anti-infantry/bunker weapon, it's designed to be a 4-shot semi-disposable launcher and it was used by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando, so I'm voting yes, although we'll probably need someone to create a model for it before the ACE team can implement it.

Where there's a will there's a road, at least that's what they say over here in Holland.
Start with installing the Tools, finding tutorials at OFPEC, BIF, BIKI, or elsewhere, make your first stick-figures, and take something more complex next :D

We all had to start somewhere, sometime :)
