The Flammenspeer (German term which means "Spear of Fire"), conceived as an expendable antipersonnel support weapon, is an armament system which has been improved over the years thanks to technological advances. The development of auto-propelled micro-munitions allowed the old expendable single projectile models to carry more powerful ammunition and dual magazines without an increase in weight. Current Flammenspeer models have multiple-stage auto-propelled projectiles that prevent the risk of suffering damage from gases ejected when the propellant charge activates, igniting beyond the point of danger to the gunner. The Flammenspeer has been designed mainly as an antipersonnel weapon, but it has demonstrated its effectiveness against light vehicles. The weapon concept of the Flammenspeer has been also developed by the Tohaa military industry, which has designed a dual firing system to be mounted on vehicles and heavy tactical units.
