Default Re: new project aka "Molotov"

I think the term Molotov Cocktail came from the Russians using them in the 2WW.
The German tanks had a grate on top at the rear,that cold air was drawn through to cool the engine. The engine was not completely sealed of from the crew inside and the flames were drawn in by the radiator fan.

I can't even guess what the terror of being inside with a full load of ammo as well could have been like.
