Don't forget that in the background is a Doppelkleif or double Kleif comprised of two mittlere Flammenwerfer (Kleif) M.1917. You can see the 1.5 m hose and the 3 m hose attached to the 1.5m Grosse Strahlrohr or large lance. The double Kleif was used when a Grof could not be moved forward.

Between the Kleif M.1914 and Wex is a Kleif M.1917. The oil can next to the nitrogen bottle has two kleine Zünder or small igniters lying on the top.

Here's the Kleif M.1916. It's different from the M.1917 in that it has three short legs, and the propellant line is on the left side. Note the construction of the oil tank; it's made of two rings and two semi-spherical caps welded together instead of being one continuous cylinder of metal.
