Shouldn't the Counterblow marker in example of play pictures on Page 22 be red then, since it's the Soviet player that discards a card to launch the Counterblow?
Yes indeed. This is a little mix-up by GMT I guess.
Here is a simple rule of thumb:
- German gray-geen Counterblow counters are put only on the Axis units.
- Russian red Counterblow counters are put only on the Soviet units.
