Khanpasha Nuradilovich Nuradilov (Chechen: Хампаша Нурадилан-кIант Нурадилов, Russian: Ханпаша Нурадилович Нурадилов; 6 July 1924 – 12 September 1942,) was a Chechen machine gunner in the Red Army credited with killing an estimated 920 enemy soldiers with his machine gun, making him the highest-scoring machine gunner in the Soviet Union. He was posthumously awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union for his last stand in the Battle of Stalingrad.
- Nuradilov told Red Army recruiters that he was born in 1920, not 1924, after being repeatedly rejected for service because of his age.
