This Order was named after the military leader Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov (1730-1800), who never lost a battle. The name was used to rally Russian soldiers during WWII, when it was going badly for the Russian forces.
The I Class medal was conferred upon army commanders, and their associated deputies, chiefs of staff, operational managers, and different branch chiefs. It was conferred in recognition of excellently coordinated front or army level operations that destroyed a superior force, an encirclement that resulted in the destruction of an enemy force, for displaying decisiveness and initiative in planning to strike against an enemy, and for executing a successful deception operation.
Serial numbers on this particular medal range from 1-108.
