I notice that at the start of the 42GC, Trans-Caucasus Front is still locked down on the Turkish border. In the 1941 GC, it becomes unlocked pretty early (maybe when Kiev falls?). What will cause it to become unlocked in the 42GC?

smells fishy - I believe Transcaucasus Front should not activate that early especially without nearby enemies

First blizzard turn I thought it activated in the campaign game.

According to the Soviet Calendar spreadsheet, it activates 6 Nov 41 along with Caucasus Front. I wonder if this is a mistake in the 42CG.

Well it is true in the sense that the Front HQ becomes active, but not subordinate units. From memory a clever German player can surround these units before they become active, if they ever do.

(6 of Nov is the date when those 2 MDs get renamed as Fronts)

I've played quite a few games of the 1941 GC where those front HQ's are active and mobile from an early date. It's true that some units of Transcaucasus Front remain locked on the Turkish border. Just playing a game of the 1941 GC that's up to turn 43, April 1942, there are still six divisions of Transcaucasus Front stuck down on the southern map edge but the Front has been active since before the winter. I'm thinking November 6th is about right. And in this game, Axis did not take Stalino, much less Rostov.

I think there's an error in the 42GC and those units should not be locked at start.

Hmm, Wiki claims a second iteration of the Transcausacus Front was created in summer 42 from Transcaucasus MD, in GC42 this seems to be the second iteration.
