History


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 awarded to 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 destroy a superior force, an encirclement that results 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.

The difference between both variations is the size of the hole on the reverse. The serial number range for variation I is 118-236 and for variation II it is 438-534.

The obverse Russian inscription translates to: "Alexander Suvorov".
