Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.

The Oryol Front was very briefly a front of the Red Army during the Second World War. By a STAVKA order of Mar. 24, 1943 it was set up on Mar. 27 by renaming the Kursk Front, while most of the forces of that Front were reassigned elsewhere. It was intended that the Front would contain 61st Army from Western Front and 3rd Army from Central Front, plus one additional army. The command staff remained as for Kursk Front, with Col. Gen. M.A. Reiter in command. Following yet another STAVKA command in the early hours of Mar. 28 Oryol Front was renamed Bryansk Front.
