Hi again, everyone!

 

Unfortunately, there are no extravagant Emporiums here, just info given to you without a wacky flailing arm man looming menacingly behind you. 

 

So, I've seen a few of you talking about the Sherman VC Firefly. Well, goods news everyone! It's on sale! WoooOOoooOOoo (that's as crazy as we get here in this vague non-Emporium place of business)!!!!!

 

If you're unaware, the Sherman VC Firefly is very similar to the American M4A3E8 Sherman, except for the all-important gun. The VC totes around a 17-pound British cannon with high damage per minute and decent damage per shot, plsu it has some of the highest penetration values in its Tier. Sound like something you'd like to slap a Verticle Stabilizer on? Well, you're in luck as this is one of the few Tier VI vehicles that can use one of those bad boys. 

 

To read up on the history of the Sherman VC Firefly, be sure to check out our portal article here - General Sale: The Sherman VC Firefly

 

If you're interested in Bundles, I have even better news! We have some!!!!!

Any tank I can throw my money away upon and simply drive away is a tank I don't have to grind ...

 

And it's a Premium

The ammunition is 17 pounds, I think, not the gun itself...

17 pounder, not 17 pound.

 

All in all, it's a Firefly.  Really good gun, tends to work best in a supporting role.

The Firefly Vc has one redeeming quality. It is a premium and gets better pay offs other than that it is the usual trash from WG. Bought it, and regret the wasted cash. Especially linked with the lazy 3-5-7 MM always getting seal clubbed by 2 tiers higher. Just a waste of money and all I can say is buyer beware!

The Firefly is an amazing tank. The 17 pdr Will chew Amy tank. Mine has a 3.8 second reload time. Just circle the Battlefield and let your round fly attention medium range! Permanent camp plus camp skull help. One of my all Time favorite!

A tier 6 medium that can pen tier 8 heavies? 

But let me ask you one question:

Is the Penetration Falloff (over distance) the same for the Tech Tree Firefly and the Premium VC?

Actually, they have only been buffing the tier 8 ones after falsely claiming Preferential Match Making tier 8 prems were the cause of bad match ups.
