Monitor, Flamethrower (Zippo)

This design came after 1967.  The first boats to use a flamethrower were Armored Troop Carriers outfitted with an Army flamethrowing APC in the well deck. Later, dedicated designs used the Monitor boat type and installed compressed air and napalm tanks for flamethrowers mounted on both sides of the bow.
