Short, concrete description of his combat feat or merits (to be drawn up by the staff of the military unit, formation or institution):

When leaving for a combat operation on November 30, 1942 a leakage in the coolers appeared. A rise of the salinity threatened the ship's speed and the maneuvering capabilities of the main turbines. Chief Petty Officer Mishanin didn't abandon his post for three days and through his skillful operation of the machinery, his technically adequate switching, and the resourcefulness and initiative he displayed, he quickly prevented the boiler water from salting, guaranteeing the speed and manoeuvrability of the ship during the period of operations, both when the ship itself attacked and when it was being shelled by enemy ships. During the raid on Yalta comrade Mishanin organized the excellent maintenance of the boilers using grease and water, in spite of the fact that the ship moved at high speed for several hours. The materiel was working excellent. During one combat operation the ship was damaged by an enemy shell, after which comrade Mishanin, being the head of the emergency response team, repaired the damage, enabling the ship to continue fighting. He is an excellent specialist and a strong-willed commander. Comrade Mishanin deserves the Order of the Red Star.
