or Front's subordination (unfortunately all info only on 1941)

"Southern Caucasis" ???? It was not a battle zone that time. On July 1942 the German troops were far from the Caucasis
the Caucasis Battle started at July, 25!
Southern Front force on Jul, 25: 9th,12th,18th,24th,37th,51st,56th,- weakend armies (21 Rifle + 1 Cavalty Divisions + 4 Rifle Brigades)
Total manpower - 112,000 men

24th Army -no info in my source, but it was removed from the battle ~in August

I obtain information on tank forces, but will omit here.....

At Aug 09, the Northern group of Zakavkazky Front was orginized (44,9 Armies, 11 Gds Inf. Corps, 89,417 Rifle Divisions,
52 Tank Brigade, 36,42 Armored Train Battalions, 50th RLR, 132Mortar Regiment)
I couldn't find any Mountain Rifle Divisions that time on frontline. All frontline Mountain Rifle Divisions information on which I obtain (I obtain info on 1-125th Rifle Divisions) were both disbanded or eliminated in 1941.
Some MRD's took part in Iran's operation of Aug 1941 and were deployed there then.
83rd MRD took part in October's Caucasis battles

Also I have no info on deployment of Marine Brigades on frontline that period.......
The same I can say about any Aircraft formations, as I devoted my site mostly to land forces......
