Response to Rare US firefly conversion based on M4A3...

Given that they never saw combat (and that is documented in that reference given) and the picture is post war Ortenburg it is pretty certain this is not a Firefly. I personally think it is a standard 75 and the photo is an optical illusion looking like a long barrel (possibly something across the glacis.
The other alternative is an E4(?) conversion of a standard M4A3 75 as I believe a few of these were done in Europe very late in the war.
Cheers
Al
