lamethrowers date from the time of the Byzantines, when hand-pumped flamethrowers were used in naval forces: see Greek fire. Infantry flamethrowers had a limited range and capacity; the larger naval flamethrowers were used to set alight enemy ships' sails and rigging. The composition of the chemical used in these primitive "flamethrowers" is not definitively known. Modern flamethrowers were first used in World War I, and their use increased greatly in WWII. They can be vehicle mounted, as on a tank, or hand-carried.

Well, since they do have the ability to throw fire, I do not see why not. I think they should be let into the army.
