The British received far more M4 medium tanks, approximately 17,000 (roughly 34% of all M4s
produced), than any other Allied nation. The British practice of naming American tanks after
American Civil War generals was continued, giving it the name General Sherman after Union
General William Tecumseh Sherman, usually shortened to Sherman. The US later adopted the
name and the practice of naming tanks after generals.
In British usage, Sherman I=M4, Sherman II=M4A1 and so on. Additional letters denoted other
features; A for 76 mm M1/M1A2 L/55 gun, B for the 105 mm M4 L/22.5 howitzer, C for the OQF
17 Pounder gun, and Y for the wider tracked HVSS type suspension.
As a result, the Sherman Firefly tanks were named this way :
-Sherman Ic - M4 with an OQF 17 Pounder gun
-Sherman Hybrid Ic - Sherman Ic with composite hull (cast front, welded rear) and a 17 Pdr gun
-Sherman Vc - M4A4 with an OQF 17 Pounder gun.
