From: Southern California
Central Front is supposed to become the green front at some point in 43, that is WAD. (But it is a light green Front, not a dark green. The old dark green SW Front font goes away entirely. The new SW Front that arrives is a different font, brown/pink I think.) The Front swap you are seeing is also WAD. So long as the actual Front count is correct, there's no issue here. You will see more of these changes down the line, most of these Fronts get renamed. In October of 43 1-3 Ukraine Fronts, various Belorussian and Baltic Fronts later, etc. The Air HQs also get all swapped out for numbered Air Armies on a one to one basis. These should all be cosmetic changes only so far as fonts and names go, the actual HQs involved shouldn't going away or changing location.
Bryansk Front disappears entirely at the end of 43, just FYI. But later on you get a Belorussian Front (2. I believe) to replace that. Central Front becomes 1. Belorussian. You eventually get a 4. Ukraine Front in 1944.
Numerically speaking, are you seeing anything outright disappear here? Nomenclature changes aside. The only actual disappearing Front that should ever happen in game is Bryansk in late 43, that is the only time you should ever actually lose a Front as opposed to getting name changes.
Did the NW Air HQ get a replacement numbered Air Army? All the named Front air HQs eventually become air armies on a one to one basis, there should be no reduction in air HQs. Again, this is a cosmetic change. On top of that you will get some new air armies arriving that serve as reinforcements for new Front commands.
