Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Adequate firepower, especially against lower tiers or stock enemies
  • Great maneuverability while speed is maintained


Cons:


  • Low hitpoints mean it can't take much punishment
  • Cannon overheat faster than guns, slowing firerate if you are not careful
  • Poor high altitude performance


Performance

The LaGG-3 was a prewar wooden design based on the high speed racing aircraft of the 30s and it shows in the flight characteristics. The LaGG is incredibly maneuverable and has adequate firepower with it's cannon, but learning the quirks of flying this machine might be a struggle for some. Pay close attention to your speed as getting too slow can mean a sharp reduction in maneuvering and loss of control. While this is true for all aircraft it is especially important in the LaGG-3. It's maneuverability is good, but it is outmaneuvered by the Yak-1 and Japanese fighters. Use your speed and firepower to overwhelm enemies, then outcircle them once you're in close but never let yourself get slow. Like almost all Russian fighters it performs best at lower altitudes.
