TOS-1 Buratino (Heavy Flame Thrower System) is a Soviet 30-barrel multiple rocket launcher and thermobaric weapon mounted on a T-72 tank chassis. TOS-1 was designed for defeating enemy personnel in fortifications, in open country, and in lightly armoured vehicles and transport. The TOS-1 is intended to engage military personnel, equipment, and buildings, including fortified constructions. The nickname Buratino matches the name of the hero of a Russian version of a Pinocchio-style tale (by Alexey Tolstoy), because of the big "nose" of the launcher.
