Can taking Moscow inflict manpower's shortages for soviets in 1942. I don't think so, but what is that myth for capturing Moscow, what the deal, manpower-it can partially migrate, factories- all would be totally evacuated, railhub it is not working like factory and not even like port it will give rail capacity in notional amount - damage, repairing itself every time,decreasing the railway capacity will not be reflected on the soviets actions.
Soviets have about 3846 manpower points at start. How much of them should be captured,damaged,destroyed so the Soviets start feeling not so comfortable?
And when lack of manpower becomes a painful spot for the soviets as lack of arments in 1941
start from 1943 or in 1944 or may be never?

In my game vs Pelton I have around 2500 manpower points. In 1942 it was enough to cover my needs. Losing Moscow would be -100. Probably not a game changer in terms of manpower.

By late 42 I have over a million men in the manpower pool regardless of what it seems I lost city wise. It only goes up from there.
