Description
 
Gaso.Line Gas50164M German "Flamingo" Flammpanzer II Tank (1:50 Scale) "If the tank succeeds, then victory follows."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

On February 21st, 1939, the German Army HQ ordered the development of the Flammpanzer (flame-thrower tank). Both producers of the Panzer II, MAN (Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nuremberg) and Daimler-Benz, were selected to develop the project. That July, a soft-steel prototype based on the Panzer II Ausf D/E's chassis was built. It was armed with two flame-throwers mounted on trackguards on either side. Flame-throwers were mounted in special turret-like cases (Spitzkopfe) that allowed them to operate at 180 degrees radius. Each flame-thrower had its own fuel tank with 160 liters capacity which was enough to fire 80 "shots" at the maximum range of 25 meters. The flame-thrower's fuel consisted of a mixture of oil and gasoline that was "shot" with help of pressurized nitrogen stored in six pressurized tanks. Flame-thrower was ignited with acetylene "lighter". For additional armament MG34 7.92mm for which 1800 rounds were carried inside. A machine gun was mounted in a small rotating turret (Kugelblende). Its crew consisted of three men (driver, radio operator and commander/flame-thrower operator) and its armor protection ranged from 14.5mm to 30mm thickness. PzKpfw II (F) was powered by 6 cylinder Maybach HL62 TRM engine with total power of 140hp. Sold Out!
