Apparently, much hot. Algeria armed with Russian TOC-XNUMHA
The sale of the TON-1A “Solntsepek” heavy flame-thrower systems to the Armed Forces of Algeria was officially confirmed: one of these 12 systems in May was shown in a video report of Algerian television about military exercises, reports TSAMTO with reference to Jane's Defense Weekly
The system was demonstrated during live-fire exercises held in the 4th military district in the presence of the Chief of the General Staff of the National People's Army of Algeria, Lieutenant General Ahmed Gaid-Salah. Judging by the published materials, a heavy flamethrower for Algeria is made on a chassis tank T-90S, which is currently the backbone of the tank forces of this country.
Thus, Algeria became the fifth known export customer for TOS-1A after Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iraq and Kazakhstan. According to military experts, the military-political leadership of Algeria had a desire to acquire such equipment after its use in Iraq. "Solntsepeki" demonstrated very high efficiency, making a significant contribution to the defeat of the terrorist group "IS" banned in Russia.
