The Flame Lance is a long barrelled flame weapon designed to hurl burning fuels at a considerable range. The lengthy barrel allows for increased fuel pressure and thus greater range compared to similar weapons of the type.
Rather than generating a cloud of super-heated gas around the weapon like some flame weapons do, the Flame Lance relies on coating the enemy target in flaming fuel entirely and letting the heat “cook” the enemy.
During several of the war between District Prain and Sheran, Flame Lances were used extensively to cook Prainian rebels from their bunkers where their longer ranges could be used to greater effect, especially by pilots trained in how the fuel behaves after leaving the weapons barrel – it takes great finesse to use this weapon effectively at medium to longer ranges as the fuel mixture creates long streams of burning arcs.
Flame Lances are also of great use during anti-mining exercises as flames are greatly feared by those seeking to undermine an opposing District. Flames not only consume all the oxygen in a mine, but also increase the risk of cave ins and catastrophic mine collapses – and the range of the Flame Lance allows for the user to be further down the tunnel if and when that happens!
