Airfix Catalogue description:

Requiring quite significant redesign of the turret and the gun mounted on its side, the 17-pounder equipped Sherman became arguably the most effective Allied tanks of the Second World War and were easily capable of knocking out any German tanks they encountered following the Normandy landings. Given the name 'Firefly', unwary German tank commanders who assumed this new Allied tank was just a standard Sherman were in for an unwelcome surprise.
