All SS PzIVH tanks should have a movement of 8.
The morale and combat modifiers of German Sergeant #1614 should be "0", not "8".
Strongpoints are single step units and can be eliminated with X results like any other single step unit.
The standard mix of strongpoints may be downloaded from Avalanche Press:
This is the standard mix found in Airborne, Airborne-IE, and Edelweiss Expanded. The strongpoint mix in Cassino '44 is different from that of other PG games.

Strongpoints are affected by the terrain in their hex just like any other unit.
Even though they can't move, they can attack using Assault Combat if an enemy unit moves into their hex.
They may not dig in or benefit from entrenchments.

The movement allowance on the counters in Airborne is misprinted. It should be "3."
