is someone able to explain the exact content of the card sets, e.g. make a list of all cards? Are the cards for the machine guns the same as in the "Achtung Panzer" rules, or of the same system at least? I would buy the two sets with my next order (have to wait for the new month budget - this month is totally spent - damm...), just to get the nice cards, but without knowing what I am exactly buying, the sets seem to be "not really cheap".
this is the content of the German Fallschirmjäger deck - series 48W04 (72 cards) This deck include all the cards needed to play the German Fallschirmjäger as a faction for 1-48TACTIC.
The faction is based on the Fallschirmjäger rifle platoon original organization in a 1941 Fallshirmjägerkompanie, but include also all weapons and equipment listed in the Luftwaffe War Establishment (Kriegsstärkenachweisung) 8121(L) dated 1.5.1944 so as to make it playable for the entire duration of the war on all fronts. In addition to the platoon's integral personnel and equipment, some extra support from the company's HQ, MG section and Regimental Anti-tank Company as would normally be available to units in the front line is also included. As always, mortars and crews are not included, because 1-48TACTIC is a real scale game and the minimum distance at which those would be positioned in reality would be 4-5 meters away from the playing table. Cards and rules for support fire by mortars and other company or divisional assets (available upon request from a field officer) are included.

yes, that helps a lot - it is exactly what I wanted to know. Thank you for the info. I guess the US deck is nearly the same, so no need to specify the content as for the FJ. So the only thing I have to do, is to wait for May...
But meanwhile I can finish my first three US Paras, and my direct order at Baueda was shipped yesterday. I think, I will not get bored the next days! I will post some pictures as soon as the three men are finished.
