Default Flamethrower troopers in WW2 films

Just watching Flags of our Fathers on tv now, ain't seen it before, but im willing to bet the flamethrower trooper is gonna go up in flames like usual. Would appreicate it if you don't tell me whether he does or not just yet though.

But does everyone else think this the moment they see the flame trooper in any WW2 film or drama. I can't think of a single one i've seen where their tank doesn't get hit and burst them into flames. It's pretty much their purpose in the film every time.

Whenever I see a flamerthrower soldier, I see him bursting it mercilessly into a compact bunker of some sort, brutally killing everyone inside.

Then a few seconds later he gets shot in the tank and bursts....

Yeah the SOP indoctrinated into every flamethrower trooper is to run around with your hands in the air screaming when you "go up in flames".

The purpose with flamethrower troopers is to bust the balls of a bunker, and then start shouting at your foes "C`mon, hit me in the tank! The director demands it!"

Flamethrower/Red Shirt = Dead man walking.
