The Firefly was fitted with a 17 pounder gun which could pierce German frontal armour and was the only Allied tank capeable of this. Each troop of 4 Shermans had 1 Firefly.

Is this a Sherman Firefly or a M4A1(76)? The muzzle break on the cannon as well as the turret design would suggest that it is the latter.

The Firefly also had a turret extension. Doesn't look like a 17pdr muzzle-brake either

Grant, I had another look today and you are right, it's an M4A1 with a 76mm gun
