The Buratino is a long-range rocket artillery used by the Latin Confederation.

Description

The TOS-1 Heavy Flamethrower System, known better for its nickname Buratino, was one of the Soviet Union's finest artillery pieces in between the wars. However, when the new Scud Launcher was introduced with its superior range and damage to enemy structures, the Buratino was phased out and retired from active duty.

But as the Third Great War progressed, the Latin Confederation, who did not develop an artillery unit of their own, was in need of vehicles capable of long range destruction in order to directly assault American fortifications. Due to Scud Launchers being in short supply at the time because of high demand, the Buratino is now produced in Turbo, Colombia and is a vital asset for the Confederation's arsenal.

The warheads that the Buratino fires contain a combustible liquid which produce a high temperature cloud of flame followed by a crushing shock wave. This makes the TOS-1 a great weapon for destroying enemy structures and killing infantry.
