This article is considered accurate for the current version (1.54) of the game.

This modified “Hatchet” features a reinforced fuel cell fixed to its rear alongside a flamethrower turret. This light tank can launch litres of burning fuel a fair distance, while its crew remains protected behind light armour plating.
In-game description

The H-19 “Vulcan” is a Colonial Light Tank equipped with a flamethrower.

General Info


The H-19 “Vulcan” houses a crew of three soldiers:

  • Driver (Seat 1)
    • Controls the movement of the vehicle, and can see the remaining fuel in the tank
  • Cannoneer (Gunner) (Seat 2)
    • Controls the movement, reloading, and firing of the flamethrower
  • Commander (Seat 3)
    • Capable of directing the tank crew, as well as giving them a better overview of the battlefield
    • Can open up the cupola (hatch) by pressing E, which allows the player to use their secondary, such as a binocular


The H-19 “Vulcan” is equipped with one main armament:

  • Flamethrower
    • Mounted on the turret (can rotate 360 degrees, turns 35° per second)
    • Ammo Used: Flame Ammo
    • Reload Duration: 5.5 seconds
    • Range: 18 meters
    • Fire Rate: 240 rounds per minute
    • Magazine Size: 100 rounds


It has a dedicated ammo slot that can hold 10 Flame Ammo magazines.

Health & Armor

The H-19 “Vulcan” has 1950 HP and is disabled under 30% health. It has "Heavy Armor" resistance: it can soak small arms fire, shrapnel, and 12.7mm machine guns, and it is immune to Flamethrowers. But heavy explosives and anti-tank weaponry are a real threat to it.
It has subsystems that have a chance to be disabled by heavy explosives and anti-tank weaponry if hit specifically: Tracks: 30% (Anti-Tank Mines always disable them), Fuel Tank: 25%, Turret/Cannon: 25%.
It has Tank Armor. With it, in best case scenario, penetrating projectiles only have a 33% chance of penetrating and doing damage. That chance goes up quickly if the armor is worn or if it is shot from up close, or on the side or rear from a direct angle, or with ammo that has penetration bonuses.
It takes 145 Basic Materials to fully repair it from 1% to 100% health with a Hammer. Its health, subsystems, and Tank Armor can be instantly repaired at a Garage for 100 Basic Materials.

Storage & Transport

The H-19 “Vulcan” can be stored in a Storage Depot, Seaport or Storage Ship.

It can be packaged into a small Shippable and transported by any Shipping Vehicle (Crane, Flatbed Truck, Barge, Freighter, Storage Ship, Landing Ships, Flatbed Car, or Large Crane).


Similar to all flamethrower weaponry, the H-19 “Vulcan” is incapable of damaging armored vehicles, unless they are open-top, where the crew is exposed to the outside environment. However, just like all flamethrower weaponry, it is effective at light structures on fire, slowly burning them down and preventing them from being repaired until its extinguished. Special care must be taken in order to ensure the safety of the vehicle while getting close to them.

Its main armament, the flamethrower, is a niche tool. When used directly against infantry, it can become one of the fastest kill tools (right behind explosions, which will instantly kill a player). While it is tempting to charge hunkering infantry, it's better to flush them out with fire and heat. The near-nonexistent damage and quick emptying of a canister forces the crew to conserve ammunition against flammable targets. Setting enemy structures ablaze will also deny enemy infantry their use, slowly damaging it and preventing them from repairing it.

Although it is possible to use a Light Tank without a Commander, it's not recommended as it will limit your awareness on the battlefield.

Standard Equipment Loadout
Like with every other armored vehicle, the crew should ALWAYS equip themselves with a Gas Mask and multiple Filters to avoid dying to Gas Grenades. Additionally, they should bring a Hammer and Basic Materials to repair the tank. These tactics can be buffed by wearing either a Tank Uniform or an Engineer Uniform.


  • Like all vehicles that use flame ammo, they can be quickly submitted into them without accessing their inventory
    • While this can be done for all vehicles, it should only be done if they can carry/use large items
  1. Equip the flame ammo and walk up to the vehicle
  2. Submit the flame ammo into the vehicle - press V


  • In Roman mythology, Vulcan was the god of fire, volcanos, and the forge.
  • Despite the description saying it is equipped with a heavy flamethrower, the H-19 "Vulcan" is equipped with a regular flamethrower, similar to the ones used in other lightly armored vehicles
