    The Sherman Firefly was a regular Sherman tank refitted with the large British 17-pounder gun for anti-tank purposes. As it could take on German Panthers and Tigers, German anti-tank troops were instructed to target Fireflies first, hence the pattern was painted on the barrel to disguise its extended length – an example of mimicry. Sherman Firefly in the picture is therefore camouflaged to look like an ordinary Sherman.
