I remember when print-screen was a thing. 

 

It's basically a Firefly with more DPM, more traverse, less engine power and more top speed. As with the Primo Vic... it might be a sign of changes to the Firefly. Not that 80 more DPM will make that better. But top speed and the extra traverse would. Or... it's like the Cromwells. And nothing will change. 

 

Personally, I had little love for the Firefly as it only had one good thing going for it. Even with the better speed. I suspect I will still skip it.

thanks.  First time I see it.  Is it available only in some areas or have I managed to completely miss a tank for all these years?

Firefly was is an average tank at best so unless this one gets a ton more mobility I don't see a reason to buy it. Only thing it has is penetration as it has no gun depression, meh gun handling, sluggish and no armor.

It’s in game files u can see it when you go to compare tanks in your garage. I admit I like the look of it - one of historical line.

Exactly. its like all the other sherman clones, thunderbolt Ect...  all useless crap with bad guns and no armor/mobility. sticking a 17 pounder on it doesent make it that much better when its attached to that trashcompactor of a hull/turret (always the weak top turret...).

Thunderbolt is crap?  I beg to differ.  It's an awesome little medium.

Fury is good too, but Thunderbolt is awesome.

I just had one VC in a an enemy team on live. How come? And yes, Thunderbolt is crap. Too slow for its useless gun. Especially when it is always against T8.

Compare the gun to T-34-85M, then tell me its good or even remotely balanced gun. :trollface:

What this has to do with anything?  Between any two tanks if one gun is better it doesn't make the other gun/tank crap.  Not that the 85mm is a better gun, but just for the argument's sake. 

 

I have the T-34-85M, it's ok, but I don't even use it that much any more.  Much more fun with the Thunderbolt.

Firefly got a very good gun, but the poor mobility kills it. On the other hand its better than the tier 6 pizza tank.

I didn't get on well with any of the Sherman tanks- US or UK, and especially not this PoS. Not a chance in hell that I will bother with this one.

There is nothing wrong with preferring a tank over another.  Perhaps even stats wise it is better.  That doesn't make the other one "crap".  

Why is this so difficult for some people to understand?  Or some of the users here are still not even teenagers?
