MOSCOW, January 8 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Armed Forces will put into service modernized heavy flamethrowers TOS-1A. These flamethrowers and simulators for the training of their fire crews will be delivered to the troops of radiation, chemical and biological security under the state defence contract, spokesman of the Russian Ground Troops Lieut.
