It is true Moscow rail hub was be much important to Soviet supplys system.Max Payload wrote: ↑02 Dec 2020 09:22Losing the Moscow rail hub would have meant that moving resources from the south of Moscow to the north of Moscow would have been equivalent in Western European terms to moving from south of Paris to north of Paris via Berlin.
Doubtless new N-S link lines would have been constructed east of Moscow, but until then Stavka’s operational flexibility on the Moscow axis would have been severely constrained.
It can to be mostest true for to say mostest difficult for to move mens or equipments or supplies from Tula on south to Kalinin on north when Germany army was drop fallschim on Moscow for to capture Moscow rail hub.

I don't know about you, but when I look at that map I saw Moscow as a vital junction in Army Group Center's objective, if captured - I see any reinforcements had to be diverted to other railway gauges hundreds of kms to the south. So he's kinda right in his assumptions.
Capturing Moscow does not mean losing all the railways, but it does mean losing a big hub to move stuff around.
More maps for you to look on
1. When Germany army was capture Kalinin was paralysed Red army on Kalinin front ?
For Red army on Kalinin front on north on Kalinin when Germany army was capture Kalinin it was be same like capture Moscow rail hub.
2. When Germany army was move east from Tula they was capture and block all rail lines on south direction was paralysed Red army on Southwest front ?
For Red army on Southwest front on south on Tula when Germany army was block rail lines it was be same like capture Moscow rail hub.
On real history Germany army was capture all rail lines for to block easy moves north to south and south to north. It was be same as capture Moscow rail hub. On real history was be Soviet union paralysed ?
No. Soviet union was not be paralysed. For to move mens and equipments and supplys was be more difficult but was not be much difficult.
