M-67 flamethrower tank

The M-67 “Zippo” flamethrower tank, was a variant derived from the M.48A1 Patton in which a M7-6 assembly was installed. This assembly was composed by the M7 fuel and pressure unit along with the M6 flamethrower gun. The modified turret was designated “Flamethrower Turret T7”, and the flamethrower was installed inside a shroud that made it practically indistinguishable from the 90mm gun M-48 MBT. The M-67 carried more than 1,510 liters of great density flammable liquid that added almost 2.3 tons to the total weight of the tank. In 1955, seventy four M-67s tanks were built by Chrysler on M-48A1 tanks for the US Marine Corps. In 1956, the M-67A1 model was built on M-48A2 tanks, and the last variant M-67A2 on M-48A3 tank chassis. Marine’s vehicles were modified to standard M-67A2 in the period 1963-64. All the examples were removed from service in 1974, being the last model of flamethrower tank in service with the US Military Forces.
