Everybody knows the Sherman tank, but its Firefly variant may not be quite as famous. And yet, for many tank enthusiasts and experts, this long barrel Sherman is behind many of the Allies victories. Back in the day, even the German crews operating big cats like the Tiger and the Panther learnt to respect it. Fun-fact: its long gun made the Firefly so recognizable that some crews were trying to make it look shorter with camouflage and various tricks.
However, they were right to do so, as the power of such a tank lies in its gun, and the Sherman VC Firefly of Joe Ekins - the Velikiye Luki - is no exception. In real life, this vehicle took four German tanks the same day, and you can probably do just as good with the accuracy, shell velocity and rate of fire of this Tier VI premium vehicle in World of Tanks!
