I am new to PB (and a novice wargamer) and I am playing the first scenario solo.
I have a german mg unit on a hilltop with a russian T34 unit attacking it from gound level 2 hexes away with a slope in between them.


According to the TEC, the attackers AF is halved, and the WEC chart states it is halved. Does this mean the attackers AF is quartered, or does the AF only get reduced once?
(sorry about the poor image)

I am pretty sure that it is quartered. It's been a long time since I played, but I remember that an A class weapon attacking infantry was halved and then the terrain effect also halving the attack for attacking uphill.

Yes 1/4.
1/2 for AP vs. Infantry
1/2 for the hilltop

It is indeed halved twice. I am pretty sure that fractions are DROPPED so that 13 becomes 6 then 3 or 14 would become 7 then 3. As a result, a combined direct fire attack by two 14 AF armored units would have a total of 6 attack factors and not 7.

Enjoy the game!

Thank you everyone for their help. The rules were not clear on this (well, I could not find clarification on this point), but you guys have cleared it up.
I am enjoying this game, as I have never played a company/platoon level game before so it is quite different for me.

I strongly suggest that instead of the T-34 firing uphill at the German SMG platoon, the T-34 holds its fire and then overruns the German SMG during the movement phase.

There is erratta at: http://grognard.com/ah/errata/panzerb.html that can help with some rules questions.

I would also recommend picking up the Boardgamer's Guide to Panzerblitz as there is a LOT of good information as well as scenarios in it.
