INTRODUCTION
 

The Sherman Firefly was a WWII British variant of the American Sherman tank, fitted with the powerful 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 tank with the 17 pounder in WWII. It soon became highly valued as the only British tank capable of defeating the Panther and Tiger tanks it faced in Normandy at standard combat ranges.
