What is that guy on the bike holding?
Flamethrower, either the Russian LPO-50 or the chinese version which was a copy. Looks like the same type in the picture above, with the 3 guys kneeling.

Looks like the Russian/Chinese flame throwers. I know the Chinese is called a Type 74.

Let me go get some pics.

The guy on the bike has the bipod folded. You can see the same weapon in the pic above the bike.

This is a soviet design, Chinese model. I don't have any good Russian pics. Item is not mine, pics harvested from funbroker some time ago.

Looking at the pics I posted and the OPs I noticed that the tanks in the OPs pic looks like the Chinese type but the wand looks more like the Russian. Look at the stock on the wand. My Chinese pics show 1 horizontal rib and the Russian shows 2. The Russian tanks have some sort of metal grate but the Chinese has the vertical poles that hold the padding.

I hope I'm not hijacking this, but how does the BATFE classify flamethrowers? I would have guessed Destructive Device... but that Russian one doesn't make any mention of that (it needs to be fixed, however).

Edit- just answered my own question. Legal in most states and unrestricted by BATFE. Interesting.
