    I don't know if someone saw this shooting device before. It's made especially for shooting the glass ampoules, which contains the white phosphorus mix inside, the same as inside of Molotov coctail bottles.

    It's a 1942 year made and a bad idea. I heard that they was used in limited quantiuty at the Wolchow front. Each of that kind of throwers must have the pail of solution of the cooper sulphate. Each of the 10 ball was exploded on the barrel, to much casualities, mostly from the shooter side. The range is approx 200-400 meters. Doesen't effect weapon

    It looks like a soviet version of the Northover Projector, same idea anyway...
