It's sounds like an easter egg, but speaking of post-war planes making it into the game, how about bringing us the Yak-3UA ? These are the modern replicas Yakovlev is making for the private market. No need for extra coding. Just marry a Yak-3 airframe with an Allison V-1710 powerplant. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Alas, the poor Yak in this series. I knew it well, but these days it is dominated by Spitfires and La7s. The Yak3 used to be the top turn and burn plane, but somewhere along the FB patching, it got an E retention reduction and can no longer sustain a turn with an La7 or Spitfire.

The smart Yak pilot can still use the scissors to his advantage, but if they get into a low circle with either of the above planes, it's usually crash and burn time.

I do like that Yak 9UT though. Great B and Zer, maneuverable and ya gotta love that one-hit wonder cannon in the snout. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I find that I can hit better with the Yak 9T and 9UT cannons better than I can with the P-39 and especially better than the P-63 cannon. I used to be much better with the P-39 cannon and still fly the P-39-Q1 regularly, but my 37mm skills have faded slightly. I so enjoy the devastation that cannon causes. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I'll have to spend more time in the P-63 to hone in on the best lead angle for that cannon.

Generally, for wing mounted MGs and Cannons, I'll use 300 - 400m, as I like to hit from a distance and get on the next bandit or be ready for the next one to attack.

I usually use 200m for nose cannons like on the La7 or I-185, but considering that the 37mm is one cannon, I may have to lower that to be more accurate in the P-39?

im way more deadly with the Aircobra's than i am with the yaks

btw , the -9UT seems weak as to me (cannon)

& if we are after a late war Yak , lets get the Yak-3M

Yak-3U metal airframe , with a La-7 AsH-82 18 cylinder radial in the nose instead of the Klimov Vk-107

I posted a pilot's account of Spitfire vs Yak-3 (he flew both of them) on this forum. To cut the log story short: Spitfire will easily beat yak-3 in horizontal. Yak-3 will easily beat Spitfire in vertical. The opinion is based on mock dogfights performed in yugoslav air force.

Which Spitfire Mk. were they talking about? The Mk. VIII and IXs hang very well in the vertical with the Yak-3 in this game. The CW versions roll on par with the Yak and my experience has been that the veteran Yak fliers who have been flying the Yak-3 since IL2, don't generally use the Yak-3 for the vertical game.

The VIII and IXs are also quite good in the vertical. Good climb, great acceleration and when you get at the same altitude as the 109s and FWs, being more maneuverable really comes in handy at turning the tables and taking back the advantage.

This is no wonder when you compare Yak9 to P39. I fly P39 much more than Yak, but in spite of that I'm considerably better in Yak. Yes, I can imagine why. This one is about plane not player.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

P39 is in most aspects simply inferior to Yak *in the game*. Gunnery being the No1. Why is P39 so hard on gunnery (Q10 being excellent example)? Because of ROF IMO. AFAIK they have similar 'performance' (in most aspects) except for ROF.

Yaks equipped with NS(37!) cannon have considerably higher ROF (and I suppose they had also AP ammo in belt) than T9, thus making it easier to use.

About manouverability.. well .. yes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

I do extremely well with the Yak-1b. I may not have the speed I want, but I can do some serious maneuvering to keep a lot of planes off my tail.

& i see the opposite with yak-3 against Mk9 Spits in the horizontal too , not the Mk5 tho , that thing has a magic turn
