  • Remote Controlled Flamethrowers

    Hello --

    I am looking for information about these fortification weapons. I come across battle descriptions once in a while that mention them. The most recent reference is in the battle of the Perekop Istmus at the gateway to the Crimean.

    Any info would be helpful.

    How common were they?
    How often were they used and where?
    What was the range?
    How much fuel (ammo) could they hold?
    Were they effective?
    How were they operated?

    Thanks

    I'm looking for info on the Perekop battle in general, but I have started a seperate thread.

    I think you mention remote controlled fougasses, which were used in the battles for Perekop isthmus.
    Very quickly browsed through my sources, I found brief notes about usage of naval mines in such a role. As they contained several hundred kg of explosives, their effect was remarkable. Although, as they used wires for receiving signals, large amount of that fougasses became unoperable due to damages of that wires. they were quite effective against German troops, but specific of their usage couldn't cause neither their wide usage, nor large overall effect on German offensive.
