Call of Duty: World at War
In Call of Duty: World at War, the flame tank is first seen in the mission "Relentless", and the player must support it by moving up with it. It is shown spraying enemy soldiers with its flamethrower.
The flame tank is also present in "Blood and Iron". The player as Dimitri Petrenko commands a T-34 armed with a co-axial flamethrower instead of the usual machine gun, and is very useful for clearing out entrenched German positions.
