DESIGN NOTES FOR PANSSARI SALAMA, By Alan R. Arvold

Panssari Salama was a Panzerblitz variant published in Grenadier Magazine #21 back in 1984. It brought Panzerblitz to the Russo-Finnish Wars and the author was Michael Benninghof. The article was unique in that not only did it introduce new counters into the Panzerblitz mix but also presented ten fully developed scenarios in the standard Panzerblitz format.

Yet for all of its achievements, the article was also full of flaws. Some of these were from the source material that Bennighof was using (we were still in the Cold War era and much source material that had to do with the Russians was still laced with mis-information). Others were based on several false assumptions that Benninghof made at the time. This has made it difficult to convert the Panzerblitz scenarios to East Front. In this case these scenarios are not directly convertible as has been the case with previous conversions of Panzerblitz to East Front. Certain changes had to be made to make them convertible.
