Flamethrowers were weapons that fired streams or bursts of fire. Although they were often used as an anti-personnel weapon, as in the case of the wrist-mounted flamethrower owned by bounty hunter Jango Fett , [4] some individuals, like the Dug Podracer pilot Sebulba , mounted flamethrowers onto vehicles. Sebulba used his flamethrower as a weapon against other Podracers to help him illegally win the Boonta Eve Classic. A millennia -old infantry mainstay, flamethrowers were modernized by Mandalorian super commandos and Republic -era clone troopers during the Clone Wars. Flamethrowers were used during the Clone Wars by clone flametroopers , [13] during the Galactic Civil War by Imperial flametroopers and Rebel Alliance flame troopers , [17] and during the cold war and subsequent conflict by First Order flametroopers. At the Boonta Eve Classic , [23] Sebulba equipped his podracer with flame throwers.

The ZX miniature flame projector also called a flamethrower gauntlet was a personal, concealed, portable incendiary weapon produced by Czerka Corporation. When triggered, the ZX produced a cone of fire five meters long and one meter in diameter. A corded fuel line connected to a backpack canister which held enough fuel for three minutes of operation. The flamethrower itself was powered by a source not located on the wrist. The unit was made famous by bounty hunter Jango Fett , and later, Boba Fett.

They housed their flame projectors on their left wrist gauntlets above their BlasTech Dur wrist lasers on their Mandalorian armor. The weapon was connected to the fuel tank in their Mitrinomon Z-6 jetpacks with reinforced cords. In the footsteps of Jango Fett, many Mandalorian Supercommandos and Mandalorian Protectors had similar flamethrowers installed on their armors.

In combat, Jango used his harnessed jetpack to gain the advantage of speed and height over his enemies. The backpack also carried a nasty surprise -- an explosive rocket could be launched from it. For interstellar travel, Jango traveled aboard his well-worn starship, Slave I. Obi-Wan meets Jango Fett on Kamino and attempts to gain valuable information about the clone army.

A flamethrower is a mechanical incendiary device designed to project a long, controllable stream of fire. Most military flamethrowers use flammable liquids thickened into a consistency similar to napalm , but commercial flamethrowers generally use high-pressure propane and gasoline ; such mobile liquids and gases are safer in peacetime applications, because their flames dissipate faster and often are easier to extinguish when necessary, because they are volatile and their liquid residues soak into porous media such as dry soil. In contrast, a military flamethrower's viscous or gelled fuel sticks to the surfaces of its targets and is harder to dissipate with water, so it easily re-ignites after the flame has been extinguished. It also spreads less than mobile fluids, so that it permits a more manageably targeted burn. From the military point of view, when flamethrower fuel burns in a confined space such as a tunnel or dugout, its effects go beyond the threat of burning; it quickly consumes the enclosed oxygen and pollutes the air within, so that smoke inhalation and asphyxiation may be as effective a weapon as the actual flames.
