I should have clarified that comment. I meant a a HERO System Vehicle Sourcebook on panzers. And I know that Osprey has books on specific tanks as well.

Ah,ha I see where you're going with this, and yes you are right, I think you could fill a whole book the size of HSVS just on German armor HERO stats. The German's did like to make changes and create variants. IIRC there are 4 production models (A,B,C,D) and 22 major variants just of the SdKfz 251 three ton halftrack. Bad for mass production but great for model builders. :)
