This plastic set includes a troop of 2 Sherman V and 1 of the superb new Sherman Vc ‘Firefly’
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.
|Cost:||236pts (inexperienced), 295pts (Regular), 354pts (Veteran)|
|Weapons:||1 turret-mounted 17-pdr super-heavy anti-tank gun with co-axial MMG|
|Damage value:||9+ (Medium Tank)|
|Option:||May cancel the ‘Easily catches fire’ rue for +10 pts (Firefly Vc)|
|Easily catches fire: If a roll on the vehicle damage table results in the vehicle catching fire add D3 pin markers rather than just 1 before taking a moral test|
Use your other tanks as a mobile flanking screen to flush out the enemy big guns, then retaliate in kind!
