Why did a second operator have to work the nozzle part?

Response to Vex Flammenwerfer

Why couldn't the man carrying the flame unit on his back also carry the nozzle from which the flame war fired? Seems like a curious arrangement to me to need two men to do the job.

Do you happen to know what the flamethrowers shown in the movie were? They looked pretty realistic, even if inaccurate for German units.

Thank you for your help, by the way.
