A Skorcha is the Ork equivalent of an Imperial Heavy Flamer, an incendiary weapon that sprays burning Promethium at its target. These weapons are commonly found mounted on Ork Wartrakks, Deff Dreads and other Greenskin vehicles. Orks sometimes have a mini-Skorcha built into some of their Kombi-weapons. These weapons have just enough fuel for one incendiary burn, when they are in close contact with an enemy. Skorchas are dangerous, unreliable and spectacular weapons and so are very popular amongst Orks.
