On 04.12.1942, on the Caucasus front, a Soviet battlegroup approached to a position just in front of the German line. Recognizing the danger it posed, Nobis assembled a force consisting of the 7. Kompanie z.b.V. 800, small elements of the Jäger-Regiment 207, the 1./Pionier-Bataillon 97, his regimental staff and elements of the Stabskompanie. In total this group was about 400-500 men strong. With it he struck the enemy group and shattered it while inflicting heavy loss. By this he stopped a Soviet push towards the Pschisch as well as the rolling up of the German defense line west of the river. He was decorated with the Oakleaves for this action.
