    This military hardware is almost certain to add to the Syrian army's efforts to finally destroy Daesh in their country.

    Telegram channel 338, which deals with military-related issues, has published a video showing a stream of fire being unleashed onto terrorists from what it described as the Russian heavy flame-throwing system TOS-1A Solntsepyok (Scorching Sun) in Syria.

    Earlier, a number of media outlets have reported about an unknown number of the Solntsepyok systems in Syria.

    The TOS-1A is an upgraded version of the TOS-1 Buratino heavy flamethrower, a 220-mm 30-barrel or a 24-barrel multiple rocket launcher, mounted on a T-72 tank chassis.
