He experimented around an acquired Sherman, though came to a conclusion that the turret size was too small for the 17-pounder's breech and recoil. What's the difference? On April 7th, the initial order was halved to 80 due to the incoming end of the war and its demand ending with the lack of encountered German armour after the Ardennes Offensive. F2. Skins and camouflages for the Sherman IC "Trzyniec" from live.warthunder.com. This tank should be the supporting line in both offensive and defensive actions, providing flanking fire, long-range fire, or fast and accurate fire to the target while the heavy tanks take up the brunt of the defence. Der Sherman Firefly (Leuchtkäfer) war ein alliierter Kampfpanzer, dessen Entwicklung als Reaktion auf die zunehmende technische Dominanz deutscher Panzerkampfwagen – besonders durch den Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger – zu verstehen ist. Troops with the up-gunned Sherman, as early as March 1944, were describing tank as a Firefly, regardless of the type. The right side of the turret has extra armour that is 88.9 mm thick. Kilbourn, a professional engineer at Vickers who was stationed at Chertsey when he was assigned the 17-pounder Sherman by the DTD. I wish Gaijin would include sandbags for extra armour, or let us put the armour on (with restrictions of course) like the decals. Field reports by a Colonel W.E.H. Once the LCT reached the shore, the Fireflies were ordered to disembark and head inland, finishing off obstacles and join their original tank regiments. Hey, guys, which ammo is worth to use with firefly... and how is gun performance nowadays, I hope it doesnt su*k :) :) like US heat fs nowadays THX THX The Firefly's performance was very favourable for the troops that had to use them against the heavy German tanks. Witheridge, still keen to the idea of using the Sherman, tried to get this directive reversed by appealing to his connections, namely a man going by Major General Raymond Briggs. What solidified the Firefly's place in history in comparison to the 76 mm Shermans was that on the very first day that the Allies invaded Normandy, the British actually brought the Fireflies while the Americans left their 76 mm guns in English depots. That said, there's absolutely no point in using that Firefly IMO. It should be noted that the 17-pounder's super round, the APDS, did not appear in Firefly stowage until August 1944,[4] and in combat was really inaccurate past 500 yards and the round fouled the barrel that it affected follow-up shots with APCBC rounds. 1.8k.

[1] These tanks could not only take out the Sherman at a longer range than the Sherman can compete in, but also withstand the 75 mm rounds fired from the Sherman with their frontal armour. However, sometime after Witheridge's arrival, the Department of Tank Design (DTD) sent a directive to the two lads to cease their development on the up-gunning of the Sherman, possibly to protect their A30 project. The 17-pounder's effectiveness against the new German tanks and the lacklustre anti-armour firepower on British tanks brought upon the concept of mounting the 17-pounder onto tanks. [15] This advice did not make much progress. He replaced the recoil cylinders with shorter ones mounted on the sides, opposite to each other top and bottom, on a special cradle, modified the gun barrel to fit onto the cradle for better support, and placed the gun breech to open horizontally (contrary to the statement that the gun was simply rotated 90 degrees sideways as the operators of the gun has not been rotated along with the breech). It's a nice formality and keeps me from trying to chew you out. Not that the American's own industries were making the situation easier for the British as when they discontinued their M4A4 Sherman and 75 mm gun production, there was a quick drop in Firefly conversions in the latter part of 1944 until they could supplement the production with enough Sherman I models. Videos featuring my skins may show up on Youtube or War Thunder Live, but they all link back to here. [11], The first non-DD tank regiment with Fireflies to land was the Staffordshire Yeomanry, which had at least 12 Sherman VC with 48 Sherman IIIs, however, little information exists on how it performed on the opening days of the Normandy campaign.

[3] One of the reasons why the 17-pounder was so effective was the use of the APDS shot (Armour-Piercing Discarding-Sabot), which could penetrate up to 256 mm of armour at 500 meters distance; this is due to the smaller, but much faster projectile used that contains more kinetic energy than a full-sized shot. While this tank is also capable of being the frontal attack unit for an assault, it is strongly advised not to due to the thin armour of the tank, necessitating the users to always get the first shot off in an encounter, otherwise the enemy will be able to destroy the Firefly easily.
