Tank Sherman Firefly byla britská verze amerického tanku M4 Sherman. Na rozdíl od originálu byl vyzbrojen britským kanónem QF 17-pounder ráže 76,2 mm. Nejčastější pohonnou jednotku představoval motor Chrysler Multibank. Britské Shermany měla ve výzbroji i Československá samostatná obrněná brigáda.

The Sherman Firefly was a tank used by the United Kingdom and some Commonwealth and Allied armoured formations in the Second World War. It was based on the US M4 Sherman, but fitted with the powerful 3-inch (76.2 mm) calibre British 17-pounder anti-tank gun as its main weapon. Originally conceived as a stopgap until future British tank designs came into service, the Sherman Firefly became the most common vehicle mounting the 17-pounder in the war.

The 8th Armoured Brigade was an armoured brigade of the British Army formed in August 1941, during the Second World War and active until 1956. The brigade was formed by the renaming of 6th Cavalry Brigade, when the 1st Cavalry Division based in Palestine (of which it was part) converted from a motorised formation (having been horse-mounted until January 1940) to an armoured unit, becoming 10th Armoured Division.
