Default Re: Commonwealth AC and tank discrepancies

Quote:
Staghound Mk1. Tulip with 4x60lb Rockets - This field conversion was used on only a handful of Canadian Staghounds in the late war period. The Staghound wore a pair of similar racks but with four 60 lbs. rockets, similar to the Sherman IC (M4A4) Tulip, but with two rails on each side. Like the Sherman tank, the conversion was tagged as Tulip. The Staghound Tulip served with the XII Manitoba Dragoons in France, 1944. The rockets were not especially accurate at long range .*
I have highlighted the relevant sections

It should be obvious to anyone these were rare vehicles
