Background[edit | edit source]

The Sherman Firefly is a British Medium Tank in Post Scriptum. Armed with a 76.2 mm QF 17-pounder cannon and one 30. caliber Browning M1919 machine-gun mounted coaxially to the cannon. It is operated by a crew of 3; one driver, one gunner and one commander. Notice the complete lack of a hull machine-gun, as the seat and the gun had to be removed in order for an ammunition rack to be installed.

Τhe Sherman Firefly, is currently the only tank in game that gets access to Smoke shells. It comes with 45 AP shells, 25 HE shells, 7 Smoke shells and 13 boxes of 250 rounds for the 30. caliber MG.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Sherman Firefly is one of the most effective tanks in Post Scriptum. It reaches about 55 km/h on flat roads which makes it one of the faster tanks and it has superb handling to boot. Its green paint scheme does a good job blending it in with the environment. It is however easy to spot out in the open due to its tall profile.

The Firefly's main gun, the 17 Pounder, can slice through any german tank with ease. The main gun reloads fairly fast which gives you the edge against the Tiger Tank which has a significantly slower reload, and not to mention the quick turret rotation compared to the Tiger's painfully slow turret rotation.

For a medium tank it offers great armor protection. It can take a beating from bigger tank guns when not hit in critical places of the hull. Its ammo-racks are however easy to penetrate from the sides and on the left frontal armor. Handheld AT launchers will also penetrate with ease and deal a lot of damage.

The lack of a hull MG makes it harder to fight off infantry in close quarter combat. A good tactic is to fire and move considering its good mobility and not staying in one place for too long.

The Firefly is the only tank that is equipped with smoke shells that can be used effectively to cover infantry or blind enemy tanks.
