About the British Sherman IC Firefly As Britain struggled to develop tanks capable of equaling the superior German Panzers, thedecision was made to convert existing stocks of M4 Sherman tanks, delivered to the UK as partof the Lend-Lease Act. The so-called Sherman Firefly featured a long-barreled 17 pdr. anti-tankgun, that was much more effective than the original 75mm gun, capable of penetrating a Tiger Isfrontal armor at over 1,000 meters using regular ammunition. The majority of Fireflies wereadapted from M4A4 tanks, designated Sherman V by the British, while some were made usingthe earlier M4, or Sherman I in British usage. Vehicles rearmed with a 17 pdr. gun were giventhe suffix C, with the resulting units being Sherman VC and Sherman IC.
