A glassbottle filled with flammable substance and some form of fuse. To be used as a weapon (anti-tank).

Most commonly fuel and a rag soaked with something flammable. The rag will burn and clog the bottle's neck so that the flame spreads only when the bottle is broken (thrown at the target).

Named and made famous by Finns in the Winter War (1939-1940). Name comes from the Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov who claimed in a radio broadcast that the Soviet airplanes dropped food to Finland during the war (instead they actually dropped RRAB-3 clusterbombs which the Finns comically named Molotov's bread baskets.) The Finns then decided to name the bottle they effectively used against Soviet tanks 'Molotov Cocktail' to go with "the food".

Nowadays used mostly by rioters and hooligans against the police. Also used in arsons.
Throw a Molotov Cocktail to the tank's air-intake to make it's engine stop!
