By using rules from the Tank War supplement you can field this troop alongside a regular reinforced platoon simply by designating one as your command vehicle and paying +25 pts for the Command vehicle special rule. Remember to keep it secret from your opponent though till the end of the game so he can’t be picked off!

Sherman Vc Firefly in Bolt Action

Often known as the ‘Charlie’ tanks in the field because of the ‘c’ denoting them as rearmed with the 17-pdr. There were enough of them by D-Day to issue 1 per troop, providing the British with a good answer to the threat of the German big tanks.
