Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Second best service ceiling of any Tier 5 fighter, bested only by the Me 209 V4.
  • Mounts almost as many machine guns as the P-40 in top configuration.
  • Unusually long overheat time for a Russian fighter due to all machine gun armament.
  • Good Airspeed, 3rd best among T5 Fighters.
  • Above Average maneuverability for a fighter, stock configuration will out-turn a Fully upgraded P-40.


Cons:


  • No autocannons, do not expect quick kills.
  • 3rd worst survivability of all T5 Fighters, beating out only three other fighters
  • Though fire volume is good, has an iffy-looking dispersion.


Performance

An oddity among the Tier V Soviet fighters and multiroles, the MiG-3 fills out the role of the high-altitude interceptor. On paper it packs good airspeed, good altitude performance, and a full machine gun arsenal. It might appear similar to the American P-40, but there are enough distinctions that will force you to play it differently. The MiG-3 has marginally better maneuverability but worse accuracy at range thanks to the gun layout. Unlike the P-40, the MiG-3 is forced to engage at a closer range to maximize its volume of fire. The MiG-3 is also more fragile and more vulnerable to module damage, so pick your fights well. Like the P-40, the MiG-3 relies on speed and altitude performance to score kills. Fly high, fly fast, stay glued to your target, and most importantly zoom up and away from low altitude dogfighters eager to ruin your day.
