This was a interesting build because I have never seen a Sherman Firefly with a dozer blade before but beside that. The Sherman Firefly was a modification done by the British on Lend-Lease M4 Sherman's . The to main modifications to the original tank is a 17 pounder gun and a box off the back of the turret for ammo. The Lego version had 2 major problems that i would have to overcome for building a Sherman is the suspension ( the VVSS had to be compact or it would make the tank too long) and fitting gun elevation into a small turret.The tank features a on-demand compressor(for dozer blade pneumatics), gun elevation, turret rotation, and it has 2 XL motors so it can be driven.

Congratulations, by now you probably know that you've made it to round 2 of the Minecraft Olympics. Round 2 categories have just been released. Good luck.
BTW, awesome build.
Wow! Awesome Sherman tank I love the 30 cal on the turret looks just like the browning. That's really cool that you put pneumatics to work the front blade and the suspension looks great. Most impressive
