Not being schooled in the military of WWII, this may be a dumb question. Forgive me if it is. I’m working on of small project of re-imaging the Combat Boots counters for the three games published so far. I just noticed that the stats for the Panzer IV from the “Bulge” counters is different from the stats for the PzKpfw IV of Battleaxe. Aren’t they the same vehicle ? Or is it my uninformed mistake ? Just askin’.

I don't have the games in front of me to compare the counters directly, but the Mark IV continued to evolve throughout the war. The early model depicted in Battleaxe (probably the D version) had a short barrel 75 gun, while the model depicted in the Bulge (probably the J version) had a much superior, long barrel 75mm, and had superior armor as well. The differences were stark enough that while the same chassis, they were essentially different tanks.
