Do the MDs become active and use same way as Fronts? Until Nov I'm suffering on army overload.
Some do and convert to fronts (North Caucasus, Bryansk, Trans-Caucasus), others withdraw (Kharkov), and others stay but remain fixed (Moscow, Urals, Southern Urals, Volga). In a way they do act as Front HQs, just that they can't be moved. IIRC MDs have roughly half the command capacity of a regular Front HQ. As for overload, welcome to the historical reality that was the Russian Army in 41-42!
