    Short, concrete description of his combat feat or merits:

    Captain Nikiforov is a talented and rising artillery officer, dedicated to the socialist motherland.

    Commanding an artillery battalion on the Rzhev axis during the fighting on September 26 and 27, 1942, he carried out his combat missions to suppress and destroy enemy firepower in an excellent manner. Captain P.M. Nikiforov skillfully directed the battalion’s artillery fire, covering our advancing infantry and successfully making the artillery fire coincide with the infantry’s maneuvers. During this battle his battalion demolished two buildings housing enemy infantry, destroyed one light vehicle with enemy officers, suppressed and destroyed 5 enemy artillery and mortar batteries, and killed over 125 soldiers and officers.

    In combat, Captain Nikiforov is a brave and courageous commander. Through his personal example of bravery and skill he always inspires the men of the battalion. Repeatedly his battalion fired using direct lay from open firing positions and bravely and persistently smashed the enemy combat formations.

    Captain P.M. Nikiforov’s tally includes a considerable number of destroyed enemy pillboxes and batteries and killed enemy troops.
