Probably. It has lots of extra details - and this chap was along for the ride!

Comrade Voroshilov for the time of combat on 21st June 1943 showed himself to be a bold and devoted to the nation Commander.

He together with his squadron destroyed 3 bunkers, 2 handheld machineguns, up to 75 soldiers and officers and repelled a counter-attack of up to 30 enemy submachinegunners. Comrade Voroshilov first burst into an enemy location, needing them to leave the trenches and retreat. Propelling our infantry to attack the enemy, soon he was compelled by weapon machinegun fire issues and took to the defensive. Then the tank of Comrade Voroshilov was forced to return, making a new approach and enabling our infantry to advance and continue to attack the enemy, at the same time destroying all that came in the path under the tracks and with the destructive fire of his tank. Comrade Voroshilov had gone through 2 times and when he went in the third time, from enemy fire the tank caught fire. Flames of the fire by skilful manoeuvres were extinguished and the following shell to hit the tank ignited it a second time, and Voroshilov was wounded in the hand. And overcoming the pain in the hot tank quickly departed destroying 2 enemy anti-tank guns.
