From Vladislav Tsap's essay on Abram Mordukhovich: Sergeant Mordukhovich destroying the Tiger-II tank.

"Concerning this tank, Abram Iliich told me:

'Among the tanks, some big and unfamiliar vehicle is crawling. We are pounding this tank ceaselessly, but it shrugs off everything we throw at it. The shells cannot dent it. The tank hit some obstacle, began to bypass it, and exposed its side to us. At this moment, I hit it with a shell. The tank caught fire. After the battle, the top brass descended upon me, and I realized that I’d knocked out a new 'Tiger'. The commander nominated me for Hero [of the Soviet Union], but the higher-ups rejected me, and I received only an order. And the tank was ascribed to somebody else'.

Most likely, he knocked out the first "Tiger II" (also known as the "Royal Tiger"). This happened on the Sandomierz bridgehead; it was there that the Hitlerites deployed these new seventy-ton machines against our troops."http://www.gazetaeao.ru/slovo-o-soldate/
