"Thank you, Lieutenant. This has been one Hell of a day."
— Konstantin Bagramyan to Lt. Badanov after destroying a column of German armor

Private Konstantin[1] Bagramyan (Russian: Константин Баграмян) was a Red Army soldier who manned a forward observation post during the Battle of Stalingrad during World War II, as seen in Call of Duty: Finest Hour.

On October 3rd, 1942, while Bagramyan and his partner were spotting targets for Gen. Belov's Katyusha rockets from their forward observation post on top of the Stalingrad train station, their radio broke. Gen. Belov ordered Lt. Badanov to then take a new radio to Bagramyan's position, where Bagramyan greeted him. With the new radio, Bagramyan called in a rocket strike on a column of German Panzer IV tanks that were going along the train tracks at the time, destroying them.
