Default Re: Agenothree (HNO3, nitric acid)

I was thinking about the agenothree flame throwers, as well as Pern being a low tech, and almost non existant petroleum sources. (where a number of the fuels for fire come from) one thought I had was the flame throwers COULD be a double tank device, with Agenothree in one tank and crushed firestone in the other. apply acid to the firestone, it leaches out the phosphine might even build pressure, once it is released from the nozzle it ignites. of course this IS just a thought on how they might have made it work.
