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.

Molotov Cocktail
-An incendiary device that consists of a glass bottle, a flammable liquid, and a soaked rag
See Incendiary

It is made quickly and easily with household materials

The bottle is filled with the liquid (usually gasoline) and the rag is soaked in the liquid
The rag is then used as a fuse that ignites the liquid
When the rag is lit the bottle is thrown by user; the bottle then breaks upon impact; the liquid then spreads and ignites instantly, creating a large fireball (depending on liquid)

Molotov cocktails can be used to attack buildings, cars, and personnel and are extremely dangerous on the receiving end

A crude yet rather effective firebomb consisting of a bottle containing flammable materials (i.e kerosene, gasoline, oil, or other flammable things) with an ignited rag at the top. Somewhat easy to make, and used sometimes by rioters, rebels, and folks who just plain want to burn things.

An incendiary bomb that triggers a fire to spread when thrown.

It is made by a glass container, a flammable liquid (usually gasoline or alcohol with 50% alcohol content or higher), a rag and a source of fire (lighter or matches).

- Fill glass container with flammable liquid

- Make a wick with the rag and place it in the glass container with part of it hanging out

-Light the external part of the wick on fire

-Throw the Molotov Cocktail from a safe distance

I’m probably on a list now.

The Molotov Cocktail originated in Finland during the Winter War between the Soviet Union and Finland. The bomb was mass produced as a mockery to the Soviet lie of food being dropped to the Finns from the sky while, in reality, bombs were dropped instead. A drink to go with the food. The term: ‘Molotov Cocktail’ derived from the name of the Soviet foreign minister with the last name: ‘Molotov’.

Nowadays, Molotov Cocktails are utilised in riots and low-level terrorist attacks.
On April 16th 2023, the New Irish Republican Army was blamed for an attack on a police van in Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland where the Molotov Cocktail was used in large quantities during a New Irish Republican Army march to commemorate the Easter Rising of 1916.
