Which country's militaries use flamethrowers?

None. Thermobaric and incendiary weapons are still used of course but the age of the flamer throwers as you're thinking of is over. They're obsolete. Say there's a bunker you want to take out. You could either get into 60m/200f of the position with a flamethrower all the while everyone is shooting at you because you have a flamethrower or you can be 100m/328f away and just fire a thermobaric warhead from a rocket launcher at it. If it was you, which option would you prefer?
Ad the fact that these launchers are smaller, lighter, safer, and the fact that you can carry a riffle as well, there's no reason to have a traditional flamethrowers.Anything a backpack flamethrowers can do a thermobaric warhead can do but better.
