The Flammenwerfer 35, or FmW 35 (literally, "flame thrower", "thrower of flames") was the one-man German flamethrower used during World War II used to clear out trenches and buildings. This was a deadly weapon that was extremely effective at close range. It could project fuel up to 25m from the user. This weapon was also known as the "skinsteal", because using this weapon at close range would usually result in severe skin loss, and the burning liquid compound used produced fumes very similar to lachrymatory agents.
The Germans made considerable use of the weapon Flammenwerfer 35 during their invasion of Holland and France, against fixed fortifications. Many in the Wehrmacht tended to steer clear of the man using this weapon, because many still felt bad about the horrible deaths the enemy soldiers suffered.
