The Yak 9U was the improved version of the Yak 9 fighter, in the words of German fighter ace Gerhard Barkhorn (301 victories), I fought against all types of Soviet fighter, including those supplied under Lend-Lease (spitfire, hurricane, P-40, P-39, P-51), and the Yak-9 was the best. In mock dogfights with aircraft supplied by the Allies, the Yak-9 bested all. In fact, the senior officer of the English No. 234 Squadron (P-51 squadron) James Eric Storrar preferred to fly a Yak-9 which was rotated to other pilots on a seniority basis. In the final week of the war a single Yak 9UT regiment destroyed 27 Fw 190s and one Bf 109 for the loss of two aircraft. During this period the Yak 9U averaged one kill for each 31 rounds of ammunition expended. The Yak 9U continued in European service after the war and was also employed in Korea. The Yak-9U was initially fitted with the Klimov M-107 engine, but problems with the engine led to the loss of the prototype in late February 1943. As a result, the Yak-9U retained the M-105PF engine. It also featured two UB 12.7 millimeter guns, as well as the ShVAK 20 millimeter cannon. The Yak-9U was regarded as equivalent in performance and handling to its American counterpart, the P-51D Mustang. Stalin did not make empty threats, and he rarely made a threat twice. Resolution of the defects became a top priority. They were fixed, and then Yakovlev and production engineers went on to add improvements. The result was the Yak-9U, where U stood for Uluchshenny Improved. The Yak-9U was difficult to tell from the Yak-9M from the outside, but it incorporated a wide range of small changes to improve performance and survivability. Over 3,900 Yak-9Us were built, the majority of them before the end of the war.-

Hey, don't forget the Ta 152H-1, 472 mph. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Also, those speed numbers for the Russian fighters are for prototypes. Production machines were usually 20-30km/h slower at least.

a captured Japanese Airman claimed his Hayate could do 700 Kmh . . . . . which is quite a bit more than the 627 Kmh we have in FB

388 Mph wasnt the fastest the Hayate could get to

You forgot the Tempests!

MkII = 442 mph at 15,200ft (first one rolled of the production line April 1944)
MkV = 435 mph at 17,500ft (First production model flight in June 1943)
