1/72: Sherman IC Firefly – 2nd “Warsaw” Armoured Div., Polish Armed Forces, Italy 1945 – The Sherman tank saw widespread Allied use in WWII, but its original 75mm gun was inadequate for taking on heavily armored German tanks like the Panther and Tiger. With remarkable foresight the British decided to fit a 17pdr antitank gun, able to penetrate a Tiger I’s frontal armor at 1000m, to the Sherman. Thus the Firefly was born, with approximately 2200 eventually produced. Most Fireflies were adapted from the M4A4 and were known as the Firefly VC (“C” denoting the 17pdr gun), while a smaller number were converted from the older M4 and were called Firefly IC.
