Hi! Because I'm German (living in Norway if you wonder)while reading the rules I instantly started wondering what a "flaming onion" looked like and what the German term for it was. "Brennende Zwiebel" .... haha ... never heard about it. Its "Vollgeschoß mit Lichtspur" and that sounds more like German "Gründlichkeit" (thoroughness).

Have a look at the following links and learn a little bit more about what a "flaming onion" was and the guns, that spitted them.

Nice - Seems to be a kind of flaming scared stiff. And not so much of actual hits.

Also why it is more likely to scare you (effect your Wind Up) than actual damage.
