I’ve always wanted to say “I’m committing a war crime” and to some extent have this be true. Obviously without actually hurting anyone. So how close can I get?
Part of the jet engine design obviously involves some fuel, fire, that which I desire. Ahem. I mean pressure. So instead of a standard fuel pump for the combustion chamber of the jet engine, I’ve decided to incorporate some gas pressure just so I can segway into the realm of flamethrowers. A banned article according to the Geneva Convention.
Obviously, if all goes well, no one actually gets burnt. But it’s still a bit of fun. I’m aiming to fill one container with propellant for the jet and another with a compressed gas to deliver the pressure which a fuel pump would normally manage. Somewhere along the way, I’ll have an injector and fuel pump assembly that mimics the good ol’ US issue flamethrower of WWII infamy.
