If the target catches fire, the burning damage will ignore their armour. I also think that the guys in the FFG threads have got the right idea in saying that fire bombs should not be launchable from grenade launchers.
    We've been treating them like most other grenades up until this point - puling pins, and not lighting fuses, for instance, which is why I didn't think twice about appending "Launcher-style" to them.

    Ugh, every single part of that statline is statistically worse than the Firebomb's.
    Except for Range and Damage, which are the exact same.
    There is no reason anybody ever would want to go for Thermals over molotov cocktails.
