Effective damage

The Flam C 500 produces a trail of fire on the ground damaging everything that comes in contact with the flames. The radius can vary although it is fairly large in a line. In comparison, it is larger than the Flam C 250. Unlike conventional bombs, the targeted area will keep receiving damage as long as the flames are burning.

Comparison with analogues

Give a comparative description of incendiary bombs that have firepower equal to this weapon.

Usage in battles

The Flam C 500 can be used to destroy bases or other ground targets. They are recommended to be used on a concentration of targets or a column of vehicles since the flames produced will damage vehicles driving through them. When flying a Ju 87 D-5, 2 bombs are enough to destroy a ground base with the overall extended burn time. However, 3 bombs will destroy it nearly immediately. The number of bombs required to destroy a base will vary depending on the vehicle's BR.

Pros and cons


  • Large damage area for bomb mass
  • Very effective against open-topped and non-armoured vehicles


  • Useless when attacking enclosed/armoured vehicles


Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />.


Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
