About Sherman Firefly
The Sherman Firefly is a medium tank, designed to address some of the issues of the original Sherman. The Sherman Firefly was a significant improvement over the original model. Unlike the Sherman, it has sloped frontal armour and had more powerful armament options.
It had a 105 mm gun that could fire high-explosive squash head (HESH), armor-piercing discarding sabot (APDS), and high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) rounds while retaining its co-axial machine gun.
The first Shermans were built in 1942, production lasted until 1945 with a total of 15,273 being built by various manufacturers for use by Allied forces in World War II.
Wiki Sherman Firefly
The Sherman Firefly was a tank used by the United Kingdom and some Commonwealth and Allied armoured formations in the Second World War. It was based on the US M4 Sherman, but was fitted with the more powerful 3-inch (76.2 mm) calibre British 17-pounder anti-tank gun as its main weapon. Originally conceived as a stopgap until future British tank designs came into service, the Sherman Firefly became the most common vehicle mounting the 17-pounder in the war.
During the war, the British Army made extensive use of Sherman tanks. Though they expected to have their own tank models developed soon, the previously rejected idea of mounting the 17-pounder in the Sherman was eventually accepted, despite initial government resistance. This proved fortunate, as both the Cruiser Mk VIII Challenger and Cruiser Mk VIII Cromwell tank designs experienced difficulties and delays.
