HISTORY ASPECTS:
The Firefly Vc tanks of the 13th/18th Royal Hussars, operating within the 27th Armoured Brigade, played a pivotal role during the Normandy campaign of 1944. Equipped with the powerful 17-pounder (76.2 mm) anti-tank gun, these tanks were specifically designed to counter the formidable German armored vehicles, including the Tiger and Panther tanks. Throughout the intense fighting in Normandy, the Firefly Vc tanks provided crucial fire support to infantry units and engaged enemy armor with precision, often turning the tide of battle in favor of the Allied forces.
As part of the 27th Armoured Brigade, the Firefly Vc tanks of the 13th/18th Royal Hussars participated in numerous critical engagements during the Normandy campaign. From the initial landings on D-Day to the breakout from the Normandy beachheads and the subsequent advance through France, these tanks proved instrumental in overcoming enemy defenses and securing key objectives. Their ability to deliver accurate and powerful fire against heavily armored targets contributed significantly to the success of Allied operations in Normandy and the eventual liberation of Western Europe from Nazi occupation.
Featuring authentic markings and details based on historical records, this 1:72 scale model honors the brave tank crews of the 13th/18th Royal Hussars and their vital role in the Allied victory in Normandy. Whether displayed as a tribute to military history or used for tabletop wargaming, this replica captures the essence of one of World War II's most iconic armored vehicles, commemorating the sacrifices made by those who served aboard the Firefly Vc.
