The Sherman Firefly was a British-converted vehicle used mainly by British and Commonwealth forces.

80 were supplied to the US Army from late March 1945 onwards, right at the end of the war.

See this site for details: http://freespace.virgin.net/shermanic.firefly/usnew.html

So I don't think the Americans had the Firefly during the Bocage or Battle of the Bulge - they should only have M10's.

Maybe i have a wrong FH Mod because i dont have Fireflys on Bocage and Bulg ? (lol) I only have a Firfly on Market Garden and there are British Forces on this map which makes it historicly correct.
