Hello,
Just received published version of the game & really looking forward to playing this interesting design! Noticed that the USSR Army Sheet has a unique Attribute for their Anti-Tank Grenade Weapon called "Morale".
QUESTION: What is the benefit(s) of this Attribute?

I did not find any "morale" references in the rules other than:

"To use a Grenade against an Armored vehicle the firing unit must first undergo a Morale Check: roll 1d6 (adding +1 for Veteran units). If the result is 3 or more, the unit is able to approach the Vehicle and you may proceed with the attack. Otherwise the unit forfeits the attack."
QUESTION: Is the Grenade "lost" or just retained for another potential try?

And in the Campaign Game rules section, the 8.4.1 Skills Table:
"Heroic morale: Automatically remove a SUPPRESSED marker from the unit when it is activated. Always pass a check to use a Grenade against a Vehicle."

QUESTION: Does a USSR unit attacking Armor with a special Anti-Tank Grenade gain any of these benefits?...
A) Add +1 drm for morale Attribute (total of +2 if also a Veteran unit)?
B) Always pass the Anti-Armor Morale Check?
C) Something else?

Thanks in advance for any clarification.

It's a reminder that also for the Anti-tank Grenades you need to check Morale (using the rules you've mentionned) to attack a Vehicle.

The Grenade is not lost: the failure on the morale check represents the inability of the units to attack in this turn the vehicle, so the grenades are not spent.

A Soviet unit with the Heroic Morale will always pass any morale check against a vehicle (standard Grenade or Anti-Tank grenade). In addition of course will remove the Suppressed marker when is activated.
