Is that terrain resistance good? Otherwise that's 13.9HP/Ton.

With terrain resistance you want the smallest possible number

 

With effective hp/t ratios of 17.4/13.9/7.7 and comparing to the six other Shermans(Easy 8, Jumbo, M4A1, M4A2E4, Fury, and Sherman III) only the Easy 8 beats it on the road. Among these Shermans however, the Firefly pulls 4th in medium terrain(barely over the Sherman III at 13.8 ) and second to worst(worst being the Jumbo) on soft terrain

 

For perspective's sake, your Type 59 will be slower in a race against it on hard and soft terrains, however the Type will be slightly faster on medium ground

So basically this is a Fury, with a slightly better DPM and a longer reload.

 

Ouch.

You are forgetting the 17pdr Mk.VII

The pen is great, I'm not disputing you there, but on average I do around 90-120 damage in my fury Per shot. Sticking your dick out in a squishy tier 6 for 150 doesn't quite do it for me.

 

I did see it last night, and it's pretty badass, but man...if it only saw 6's and 7's it would be so much better.
