Hello everyone, some time ago, following data appeared on official American World of Tanks tankopedia (the portal wiki). The data belong to four tanks: Sherman Firefly, Sherman II, AC I “Sentinel” and AC IV “Thunderbolt”. So, is this the first leak into what the Firefly branch will look like? Unfortunately, no. You see, these four models have something in common. They have all been modelled for quite some time (in some case, maybe for even two years). Yes, the Firefly model actually exists, there was even a screenshot released at some point, long time ago. Of course, these models are not in HD, as there was no such thing as “HD models” back then. In any case, all four tanks exist on the internal WG server and for some reason, someone (probably by accident) added their data to the US site. It was deleted after a short while, but someone took screenies. Of the four tanks, the Firefly line will have the Firefly itself and the lend-lease Sherman (whether it’s the same vehicle as this Sherman II, that is unknown). AC I and AC IV are not scheduled for release anytime soon and there is no regular branch planned for them (as you can see from the gun choices, they are clearly intended as premium tanks). It’s not the “real deal” – Firefly branch tanks are, as far as anyone knows, not tested even interally (let alone supertest), but it gives us an insight into the way WG wanted to implement the Firefly.
