I just got done flying a 109F4 against the lagg3 '41 in the QMB. I was easily able to outrun the lagg3 in dives and level flight. The lagg seemed to turn with me well and eventually got to my 6. On zoom climbs after a dive it closed on me and at various climb rates from level it was able to close. Hope this helps.

I flew against jit online just now, it turns well and absorbs massive amounts of damage. I shot off the rudder although his flying didn't seem to be affected much. Before he got killed he downed a Bf-110.

thank you! very interesting.....

i was wondering if it's performance would be greatly reduced or if stalls/spins would become any worse....

I`m flying the Lagg 3 `41 in Campaign now. Immediate impressions are that I`ve not noticed much difference. I`ve not stalled yet, (but I am being a little careful ) shot down 2 zersterors so far. Performance feels as good...

Heavier mg sound. Bullets seem to do more damage.
I`m not gonna give too much of an appraisel after just a couple of hours though.

p.s. AI rear gunners appear not so accurate, but you have to still be careful (as it should be). I was PK `ed in one mission.
Noticed smoke in everything lasts longer. After one mission there were 6 or 7 smoke trails on the landscape...

Thanks, Seafire.

Waiting to see what the Luft boys say about it. Was one of my favorites , but there seemed to be quite a few complaining that it was overmodeled.

Cheers all,
& hope you're having fun!!!

It is still way overmodelled.. turns very good.. and this was the heaviest fighters and most sluggish fighters in vvs-arsenal in 1941.. Thought it had some armor, i believe.. but still way too good of a turn fighter IMHO.

Here we go. 2 hours play and Lagg is now overmodelled,,, didn`t take long... It always amazes me how dead certain analysis are made after so short a period!!

Tiger Tahnks for providing some feedback, please keep me advised.
Seafire,
Well they said it was overmodelled before the patch. i was wondering if it would be diferent enough that the LuftWaffle
pilots would accept it.

I've heard it was underpowered but not can't recall what kind of wingloading it had compared with the 109 F .
Seems the climb rate was also questioned. It may be that they modelled the best Lagg3, it does have slats & all so....
Can't wait to get that new book on Lavockin fighters.

Guess i' should try some tests of tyhe Lagg climb rate & stuff to form my own opinion.
