M202 Flash

One of the funner things I got to shoot as a young Lightfighter in Hawaii  was the M202 Flash “flamethrower.”

Basically a box of four rocket tubes, the launcher fired a 66mm rocket (based on the M72 LAW) with an incendiary warhead.

We shot them on the range, but I don’t recall ever even seeing any plans for using them in wartime. If I had to guess, I think we were primarily just shooting off some old stocks before they were withdrawn from service.
