Brief, concrete description of his feat of arms or achievements:

On 01/25/1942 at 15:20 in the Khokhlovka area, Kursk region, the commander of the gun, comrade Lebedev, personally acting as gunner, shot down a German twin-engine fighter of the “Messerschmitt 110” type from a captured 20mm anti-aircraft gun. The downed plane, engulfed in flames, crashed in the Kryukovo-Uderevo area.

On 07/16/1942, at 13:56, the gun crew of the guard senior sergeant Lebedev fired at a German Henschel 126 aircraft that made reconnaissance flights over the disposition of battle formations and rear services of divisional units at a distance of 2200 meters. The plane was shot down by bold, decisive and well-coordinated actions of the crew. A direct hit of a projectile knocked off the tail unit, and the plane, losing control, crashed into the ground 800 meters behind the front line of the division.

For the skillful leadership of the gun crew in the fight against enemy aircraft, as a result of which 2 enemy aircraft were destroyed, the commander of the gun Guards Senior Sergeant Lebedev, deserves a governmental award with the order of the Red Star.
