How big is the COBI Sherman IC Firefly ZEMSTA II Tank:
Currently we are awaiting final specifications on the length and height of the COBI Sherman Firefly IC ZEMSTA II and we will update this page once we find out the sizes. However, if you compare the COBI ZEMSTA II to other COBI Sherman tanks in 1/35th scale such as the COBI Company of Heroes Sherman here, you will see that it should be approximately the same size at 6.7″ long and 4.5″ tall.
Where is the COBI ZEMSTA II Sherman made and when can I pre-order or receive it?
The COBI Firefly ZEMSTA II is expected to arrive in the USA (it is made in the EU in Poland and must be shipped via ocean freighter) around November of December of 2022.
Here at warbricks.com we will offer the set as a pre-order when we believe it will arrive in 30 days or less. Sometimes pre-orders do not arrive when we expect for various reasons so flexibility is encouraged.
This is not a Lego Sherman IC Firefly tank as the parts are made entirely by COBI in Europe. The COBI Sherman IC Firefly ZEMSTA II (2276) is Lego compatible however and will fit in well with your existing lego collection. You can reference COBI sets by their parts number as well. This set is the COBI 2276.
Sherman IC Firefly History:
The Sherman Firefly IC stands for a hybrid Sherman with a British 17 lb gun. the larger 17 lb gun was necessary in order to attempt parity with the German Tiger 1 tank which had superior armor and firepower in comparison to the standard Sherman tank. There is a great website that has very detailed images and descriptions of these different Sherman firefly tanks here.
The history surrounding the Sherman Firefly ZEMSTA II can be found here at wikipedia and we sourced images from the r/Tankporn (family safe link). The Firefly ZEMSTA II (sounds like the first one didn’t make it) was part of the Polish Warsaw 2nd Armored Brigade Tank Battalion 3rd Platoon. All of the 3rd platoon tank names started with the letter Z. Read more about it here.
