Description

INERT 1943 Dated fixed QF 76.2×583R APCBC/T round

17 pounder Armour Piercing Capped Ballistic Capped Tracer round.

In an effort to give British tank crews the ability to engage and defeat German Panther and Tiger tanks on the frontal arc the 17 pounder A/T gun was literally squeezed in the Sherman turret. To permit the gun to fit this necessitated turning the gun through 90 degrees and welding an extension onto the turret rear, the hull machine gunners position was also deleted to allow for extra ammunition stowage. And so was created the legendary Sherman Firefly.

When firing the APCBC round the 17pdr was capable of punching through around 125 mm of armour at 1000 m, more than enough to deal with its German adversaries.

Fabulous condition throughout. No dings, dents, blemishes or corrosion.
