I haven't yet done testing of this fact in Il2 but the object viewer states this. I found one nice page on net which clearly shows and states that these both versions were of same length:

the pink is the "UD" version the blue one is the early version.

"the introduction of a gap behind the stacks; this was due to the moving back of the cowling border to improve the access to the engine, but can give the impression that the aircraft was lenghtened, so the late MiG-3 is sometimes erroneously called "long-nosed", "leghtened" or "MiG-3 UD"; in reality, the total lenght remained 8250 mm "

If I'm not mistaken....the Mig-3UD and the Mig-3U are different. Not sure if we have both in the game...there are so many Migs and I can't remember http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

In the game we have: Mig 3 early (1940)
Mig 3 ud(various mods)
Mig 3 u (last version - only six were made)

The object wiever says that Mig 3 early has length of 8.25 m and Mig 3ud is 8.45, but that page says that both were the same length as mentioned in my first post. Mig 3u was really longer with different engine and different aerodynamics
