Since the Yak9-UT is not on the view aircraft list in AEP I was wondering if anyone knows what the armament consists of. I have tried to find it on the web but I could find nothing. If someone could tell me what kind of guns/cannon are on it I would really appreciate it. Also if anyone knows how much ammunition each gun has on this aircraft and on many others. If there is a website that contains what type of guns these fighters carried that also tells how many bullets/cannon rounds each gun had that would be some good reading for me. Thanks....

As p1ngu666 said, Yak-9UT was armed with
1 x 37mm NS-37 cannon (30 rounds of ammo) and
2 x 20mm B-20S cannons (120 rounds of ammo each).

"The best fighters I met in combat were the American P-51 Mustang and Russian Yak-9U. Both of those types obviously exceeded all Bf109 variants in performance, including the 'K'. The Mustang was unmatched in altitude performance, while the Yak-9U was champion in rate of climb and maneuverability."
