|A Finnish soldier |
with a Molotov cocktail
in the 1939-40 Winter War.
They are frequently used by amateur protesters and non-professionally equipped fighters in urban guerrilla warfare. They are primarily intended to set targets ablaze rather than instantly destroy them.
As incendiary devices, Molotov cocktails are illegal to manufacture or possess in many regions. In the United States, Molotov cocktails are considered "destructive devices" under the National Firearms Act and regulated by the ATF.
If you are really interested in a flaming cocktail, stick to this one...BUT even it can be dangerous so leave its concoction to an experienced bartender!
