Description

Description

Forming a nearly perfect armoured task force unit, the bundle contains:

  • 4 Cromwell Cruiser Tanks
  • 1 Sherman Firefly Vc
  • An A5 Tank War Mini Rulebook
  • British Unbrigaded Tank Regiment tactical markings - white decal sheet
  • British Stowage Pack

The Cromwell marked the point at which the British cruiser tanks finally came of age. Leading the British armoured charge, the Cromwell decently stood up to the once superior German tanks, notably the Panzer IV, of which they have now come to even ground in terms of efficiency on the battlefield. However, the Cromwell did not have the stopping power the Sherman Vc Firefly had. Nearly the equivalent of a tank sniper, the Firefly could easily penetrate any target from 1000m away, even making Tiger tanks cautious of their next move if they know a Firefly is on the prowl.

The Firefly is noted as a glass cannon, able to dish out an enormous amount of punishment with its super heavy anti-tank gun but unable to take a large amount of damage back. This is where the 4 Cromwells would intervene, even though they have the same armour (9+ medium tank), they can still block line of sight for your opponent and interrupt any pesky infantry.
