I noticed that there are no step values on the counters for the German tanks and yet the Russian tanks have them. Could someone explain why this is?

Just a guess since I don't have the game yet-- but are German tank counter single vehicles while Soviets represnt a group or platoon of tanks? I thought I read something like that, but couldn't find the reference.

I believe that is precisely correct. The Germans ahve the tactical flexibility to assign individual tanks to op sheets and maneuver across the map individually while the Soviets are stuck operating on a platoon level.

Ah ok, that occurred to me but I thought that would make them too powerful. For example, a 4-step T-34 tank has an Attack Rating of 3 and a 1-step Marder has an Attack Rating of 4.

The attack rating is per tank.

In other words, that 4-step T-34 counter has a firepower of 12 for Area Fire, and counts as four steps (with an Attack of 3) for Point Fire.
