Does anyone know if there should be a British Sherman V card in the base game?

Thanks.

Hi Kent -

I don't have my set handy but I recall it has cards for all the vehicles available in the 'First Wave', which includes the Sherman V. Based on that I'd expect to see it. If it's not there, you could use the US 75mm Sherman and apply the British special ability that escapes me at the moment, instead of the 'Gung Ho' that appears on the card.

Thanks JR.

I'm asking cause I have the base game with 2 Firefly cards but no Sherman V. Just wondering if that was a mistake or not.

Thanks!

Ah, I see - in that case I reckon it's a mistake and you're missing a card. I'll check my own set but can't do so 'til Monday.

I recall seeing it in JR's set, so it looks like you've got a goof on your hands.

Kent, the Sherman V is indeed in the base set. I was wrong - it has several differences from the US 75mm Sherman - Initiative 5, Attack 4, Defense 1, Damage 4. It does have the standard Commonwealth attribute of 'Indirect Fire' - you may retain one die if you use the stationary fire re-roll.
