Yea I am 1 win and 3 losses with my firefly so far.

 

My third game at castilla though was a nice high cal, first class win. 2257 damage 3 kills

 

Had to go with the calibrated shells cause this gun pens butter with a struggle.

The way some players behave, you'd be entitled to think WOTB is a matter of life or death! What's wrong with them!? Don't they know it's much more important than that!!

what the hell... no 17lber?  No night-abolishing muzzle flash?  That's what makes the Firefly... the flipping FIREFLY!

 

as if these tanks weren't ROYGBIV enough...

The gun has 130 pen with ap.....the 17lb has 170 if I recall correctly,so not only do you have to fight having no armor you have to fight getting a shot in,if the turret had some armor it'd work hell have the frickin' E8 turret would have made it work :sceptic:

Yea. The only reason the Firefly had that special turret was the 17pdr (the much larger shell to be specific). But on the other hand, it’s got the nuclear reactor..

Not sure if I'll drive these tanks or just sell them for credits. They don't seem all that interesting to me and I haven's witnessed any impressive games by tankers driving them.

They really aren't too bad, with the tier 5 being pretty good.  Probably tied for best tier 5 medium premium/collector with the Scavenger.

 

The tier 5 is one of the better tier 5 mediums.  More mobile than most, DPM is not the highest, but above average for type and tier.  10 degrees of gun depression and a small turret make it a good hills tank. 

 

The tier 6 is mobile, with again 10 degrees of gun depression, and tied for second best of all tier 6 mediums in DPM.  It is worse than a Bromwell, but better than the AC4.

 

Tier 7 is on par with the T23 overall.

The tier 7 is fun. Run a few games before selling it. Plays like a comet with decent credit earning and a nice low profile. Plus the turret is so small it’s a tricky tank to pen if it gets hull down.
