HISTORY ASPECTS:
The Firefly Vc, operated by 3 Troop, A Squadron of the Northamptonshire Yeomanry, played a crucial role during the Allied invasion of Normandy in 1944. These tanks were equipped with the potent 17-pounder (76.2 mm) anti-tank gun, providing much-needed firepower to tackle the heavily armored German tanks encountered during the campaign. As part of the British and Commonwealth forces, the Firefly Vc saw action in various engagements, including the Battle of Caen, where it helped to break through the German defensive lines and advance inland.
Throughout the Normandy campaign and subsequent operations in France, the Firefly Vc tanks of the Northamptonshire Yeomanry provided vital fire support to infantry units and engaged enemy armor with precision and effectiveness. Their ability to penetrate the thick armor of German tanks such as the Tiger and Panther made them indispensable assets on the battlefield. The courage and skill of the tank crews, combined with the firepower of the Firefly Vc, contributed significantly to the success of Allied operations in France and the eventual liberation of Europe from Nazi occupation.
Featuring authentic markings and details based on historical records, this 1:72 scale model pays tribute to the brave tank crews of the Northamptonshire Yeomanry and their pivotal role in the Allied victory in Normandy. Whether displayed as part of a military history collection or used for tabletop wargaming, this replica captures the essence of one of World War II's most iconic armored vehicles, honoring the sacrifices made by those who served aboard the Firefly Vc.
