5 December 2007: Four Russian countersheets, PB Russian 4, PB Russian 7, PB Russian 8, and Panzer Variants 2 have been reposted. Five counters, the ZIS-42 (formerly 6B01; now 7I01), the M-15 (formerly 6C01; now 7J01), the M-17 (formerly 6D01; now 7K01), the GAZ-AA (formerly 6E01; now 7L01), and the YAG-10 (formerly 6F01; now 7M01) had been erroneously assigned ID numbers in the 6 series, that is, they were mistakenly classified as self-propelled artillery. They have, in consultation with Alan Arvold, been correctly re-identified as assault guns, in the 7 series.
These changes affect ID numbers only; NO FACTORS HAVE BEEN CHANGED. Thus, counters produced from the earlier versions of these sheets are perfectly valid for play purposes. The re-identifying of these five counters have resulted in two others shifting place: the M-8, on Panzer Variants 2, formerly 6G01, is now 6B01; the M-31, on PB Russian 7, formerly 6H01, is now 6C01. All these changes are, in a sense, cosmetic; you needn't remake the counters. Purists, however, will want the record set straight.
For those who wish a quick fix to the problem, a special countersheet, PB Russian AG, accessible from this page only, has been created: it contains all the ID-corrected counters in the same quantities with which they appear in the regular countersheets. You can, thus, download and make these counters, discard their old opposites, and you're ready to roll.
14 November 2007: Map orientation for IS PB No. 4 confirmed.
19 September 2007: The twelve supplementary PB Situations from The Wargamer's Guide to PanzerBlitz posted on the PB Scenario page.

1 August 2007: The first two countermix templates, aids to scenario design, posted as downloadable pdfs on the PB Scenario page. The Russians will need an additional sheet for early & variant armor. Generally, pure silhouette variations (the three Russian trucks; vehicles with the top up & down) are not included. An exception has been made for the Russian B--4 203mm Howitzer.
31 July 2007: The Identity Code of the Russian M--31 SPA, formerly 6C, was changed to 6H, after it was discovered that the lend-lease M--15 SPAA has the same code. Accordingly, the countersheet PB Russian 7 was reissued with the corrected M--31 counters.
