The Sherman Firefly is just a normal Sherman with a mounted 17 pounder gun, so I don't know if it should be in the game... But I guess it could, with some changes.

Firefly isn't on the medium tech tree :/

they'll probably make it a TD or a premium tank.

Expected in November? Like it was expected in Quarter 1 of this year? Let's hope the Matilda BP isn't a taste of things to come.

Firefly is standard probably on 2nd med line which is rumoured to be a lend lease line

Firefly was already placed into normal tech tree earlier this year in Q+A, so no fear, it won't be Premium, it will be just coming a bit later. And as a self-appointed representative of M4 Medium cheerleading section I will make sure to get it as soon as it gets in game :) 17 pounder for the win!

Panther with metal sheets attached to look (from a long distance, in bad light, and if looked at by a myopic soldier) as M10 TD.

Send them victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save The British Tanks!


If my hopes become reality, the mediums will hit fast, and move faster.
And the Heavies will be real spongy.

I CANNOT WAIT!

Would be better to see a tech tree instead of just a list of vehicles to know which tier are the specific tanks in.

here you go:

(LINK since spoilers seem to have problems sometimes)

:Smile_honoring:

Note: It needs to have the Tier X added, but is otherwise OK :)

Wait a sec mate, the in development section states that tier10 heavy will be the FV215b (isn't that the one with the atomic 180mm canon?) and not the 130 mm as the image you posted suggests?

I hope the Crusader, as a Tier V Light, doesn't get terrible MM, I don't know if it could take it.
