The tank could carry 1020 liters of flammable liquid and the flame gun, which was fired via a foot pedal, had a range of up to 60 meters. In order to protect the tank and the flammable liquids inside it had 20 mm of extra armor and additionally it had a 30 mm plate added to the upper and lower hull front. For protection the tank also carried 5 fire extinguishers, 3 on the inside and 2 on the tank’s exterior.
