The American OB specifies an M4A1F tank with a bow flamethrower. In the B&J counter mix, however, I cannot find one. There are other Sherman FT tanks, but I do not see that one. Does anyone else?

I found an M4A1F in the Operation Cobra counter mix, so this is not a problem for me. I want to confirm the correct tank is specified on the scenario card.

TIA.

Most of the FT versions of the Sherman were in Op Cobra, only the M4A2 variants were in B&J. The only US use of any M4A2 variants was by USMC as they had better access to diesel supplies. The British and Soviets got most of the M4A2 production with the Soviets the sole users of the M4A2 (76).

The weird thing is that the US Army used the diesel M10 TD worldwide but not the petrol M10A1 !:hmmm:

Paul is correct that those counters were in Operation Cobra. You will also find them in Crucible as a part of our reprinting in grey core for all previously released counters.
