    Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

    Serving on the “Groza”[trans: “Threat”] vessel and later “Uragan”[trans: “Hurricane”] since the beginning of the Patriotic War, Comrade Pryanichnikov directly participated in combat actions serving as an example to his subordinates. From 22 June 1941 through March 1942 he participated in many combat operations shelling enemy fortifications and equipment, engaging in convoy operations with our and allied transports including the rescue of the “Mariya Ulyanova.” While in the 2nd Battalion assault/fire-correction party he repeatedly landed on the Western Face to adjust fire upon enemy firing positions and personnel, as from the “Groza” and “Smerch” escort vessels. Through his hard, selfless work upon the “Uragan,” he greatly enabled the quickest introduction of a vessel into the naval fleet. First occupying the duty of helmsman and then helm section commander, Comrade Pryanichnikov’s intiative and decisiveness repeatedly extricated the ship from difficult situations.

    On 5 March 1943 while passing through Ekaterinenskaya Harbor, the steering wheel went out of order and repeatedly reporting about the situation, Comrade Pryanichnikov ran from the steering section and transferred the steering wheel to manual control, thus preventing a major accident. On 12 May 1943 while passing the narrow strait between Salnii island and the eastern coast of Kolskii bay, the steering mechanism went out of order and Comrade Pryanichnikov quickly reported the situation and instantly transferred the steering to manual control, thus permitting the commander to assume control and prevent a major ship accident. On the night of 11-12 October 1943 while accomplishing its combat mission at the entry of the White Sea in stormy weather the steering mechanism again went out of order due to damage. As a result of the damage, Comrade Pryanichnikov took manual control of the ship for three hours.

    In September-October 1943 the ship was without a navigational electrician and Pryanichnikov learned this specialty in the course of a month and worked as the navigational electrician. In day-to-day conditions in any maneuvers Pryanichnikov proved himself a real master of his trade, greatly easing the commander’s control of the ship. During his service he participated in more than 22 convoys going over 11,000 miles, participated in the accomplishment of the Command’s mission in employing new equipment, conducted military patrols, and searched for enemy ships.

    For exemplary accomplishment of the Command’s missions on the front against the German invaders and for displaying valor and bravery, I recommend Comrade Pryanichnikov for the Order of the Red Star.
