The LPO-50, Light Infantry Flamethrower (Легкий Пехотный Огнемет – Lekhi Pehotni Agremyot), first entered service with the Soviet Union in 1953 and was not phased out until the end of the war in Afghanistan. Each tank had enough fuel for 3 seconds worth of fire and the selector on the firing unit allowed the operator to choose which tank to enable. It had a maximum range of 70 metres with thickened diesel fuel. The Mujahideen were terrified of this weapon, with good reason! It was also manufactured in other Warsaw Pact countries, such as Romania, Poland, Hungary, East Germany, and also in China as the Type 74. The Vietnamese also made this version. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold London or Birmingham proof marks and a certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly.
