The M202 FLASH wiki last edited by Giantstalker on 05/21/14 06:25PM View full history


The M202 FLASH is a four-tube Thermobaric rocket launcher, essentially throwing napalm at the enemy. It is filled with four 66mm incendiary rockets, the same caliber as the anti-tank M72 LAW. The M202 FLASH is perhaps most famous as the rocket launcher used by Arnold Schwarzenegger's character, John Matrix, in the 1985 action movie Commando.

In Games

Games with this weapon often use a high explosive rocket or even a guided missile instead of its actual ammunition; while inauthentic, this often makes it a more powerful and versatile rocket launcher.

Some games only use its general shape, or a modernized design in titles such as Far Cry and Soldier of Fortune.
