      I beg somebody could tell me about the meaning about these number.
      If I recall it correctly from my boardgaming days:

      Top left-Gunpower.(How effective its main gun is).

      Top right-Gun range.(2 hexes in this case).

      Bottom left-Defence strength.(A number derived from the vehicles actual ability to survive being hit).

      Bottom right-Movement allowance.(A number based on the real vehicles speed and manouvreability).

      There is a silhoutte of the vehicle in the centre of the piece and directly underneath that is the name of the vehicle,in this case it's a Panzer 1.
      Under that is a piece ID number.
      I think the vertical line between the two top numbers may indicate that it is an armoured unit.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,Tony.

        It's an old Panzerblitz piece.

        firepower = 2,
        range = 2,
        I = infantry class weapaon,
        protection = 2,
        mobility = 8.

        This is a from an old Avalon-Hill game, circa forty years ago. It was called Panzerblitz 1941, IIRC. It was a big hit. We played it often.

            'Tis the sign of a wayward youth. In fact it's a dead giveaway.

              Wow, I remember that! I played that too, together with other AH games. I don't remember early-war counters like this one, however, more like 1943 counters. Maybe there were several editions or add-ons.

                I missed Blitz, but I played Panzer Leader.

                  They've redone the game to cover the entire war now (still working on tyhe Pacific last I heard). Now you can have Pz II and III fighting S35s, A13s or T-26 as well as the 'heavy metal' Pz V vs IS-IIm, Pershing or Centurion.

                  Platoon/battery level units for most countries, company level for the Red Army. Quite the hoot.

                  The only thing they did not do was re-jig the artillery and vehicle movement as per "Arab-Israeli Wars" to make both more realistic.

                  Back in the day I had Panzer Blitz, Panzer Leader, Panzer Leader 40, Arab-Israeli Wars. (Probably still in a box downstairs)

                    I loved Arab-Israeli wars.

                    We would move the counters to the Panzer Leader boards and play USSR-USA Fulda Gap scenarios.

                      Individual Platoons!?!?! as units in a global grand strategy game?

                      Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
                      And sorry I could not travel both
                      And be one traveler, long I stood
                      ...
                      Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
                      I took the one less traveled by,
                      And that has made all the difference.

                        PB is not a global grand strategy game.

                          "Redone the game to cover the entire war" bit threw me off guard.
                          That'd take a while to move counters for a turn on the Ostfront wouldn't it.
