Flameblower Dalek

The Daleks possessed the technology as early as the time of the 2150s Dalek invasion of Earth. The Dalek with whom Marcus Bray collaborated acknowledged the technology was similar to Earth flamethrowers. (After the Daleks)

Battle Daleks of the New Dalek Paradigm used flamethrowers, which they referred to as flame guns, to melt through ice when searching for “the Abomination”. The ends resembled the eyestalks of Progenitor Daleks. (The Only Good Dalek)

The Bronze Daleks involved in the Dalek Project during World War I used flamethrowers to clear forests while pursuing the Eleventh Doctor and his companions. The flames shot out of their suction cups. (The Dalek Project)

BEHIND THE SCENES

The Daleks in Dr. Who and the Daleks (the 1965 Peter Cushing feature film) were originally supposed to have flamethrowers as their main weapons, replacing the futuristic gunsticks of their televised counterparts. This was eventually replaced with gas weapons, but a flame-spouting gunstick is still prominently visible on the Black Dalek in one of the early posters for the film.
A figurine of a “Flamethrower Dalek” from The Daleks’ Master Plan was released with issue 77 of Doctor Who: Figurine Collection.
