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.

It is the first ever Firefly Ic in Dragon 1/72 model kits. Based on the Sherman I (M4), it has a cast one-piece differential housing and a characteristic turret stowage box – this housed the radio equipment that was displaced by fitting the larger gun. The turret and lower hull are brand new castings that capture the characteristic look of this Sherman variant.
