(documentation MolotovCocktail EnglishLanguage "Molotov cocktail, named after Vyacheslav Molotov, also known as petrol bomb, benzine torch, molotov grenade or molotov bomb, is the generic name for a variety of crude incendiary weapons. While they are commonly associated with irregular military forces and rioters, they are actually more frequently used for basic arson[citation needed]. In urban slang, they are often referred to as a homemade frag or the poor man's hand grenade. A Molotov cocktail consists of a glass bottle partly filled with flammable liquid, typically petrol, alcohol, methanol or ethanol. The mouth of the bottle is stopped up with a cork or other type of airtight bung, made of rubber, glass, or plastic, and an igniter, such as cloth rag is fixed securely around the mouth. The weapon is used by first soaking the rag in a flammable liquid immediately prior to using it, lighting the rag, and throwing the bottle at the target. The bottle shatters on impact, spilling the flammable liquid over the target, which is then ignited by the burning rag. There are also sophisticated methods for igniting, such as use of pyrophoric mass Bengal fire or a chemical igniter based on reaction of sulfuric acid and potassium chlorate, which do not need an external source of fire to work. Additional substances may be added to the basic Molotov cocktail to enhance its use as a weapon. Molotov cocktails are similar to napalm bombs in principle. Napalm was originally made by combining flammable naphthalene and petrol with a thickening agent palmitic acid, the latter two being the main ingredients of Molotov cocktails. When gasoline is used as the main ingredient, motor oil or sugar is commonly added to help the gasoline cling to the target. (from Wikipedia)") MilitaryDevices.kif 1250-1274
