Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • High maneuverability
  • Above average airspeed
  • Can hit surprisingly hard with how few guns it has
  • 20mm and 12.7mm guns have good range


Cons:


  • Low health
  • Feels somewhat lacking in firepower, top configuration only has two guns
  • Flying Match stick; will very easily catch on fire without a self-sealing fuel tank
  • Poor boost duration, only 6 seconds of boost


Performance

This is the first Yakovlev fighter available in the game. It has its ups and downs but if you get used to it, you'll find it enjoyable. It's maneuverability is it's strongest point. Being able to outmaneuver all tier five aircraft except for the A6M2 zero - which has a very small edge in that category - and the Ki-43-II. It's speed while not the fastest, comes in handy when facing other aircraft. What brings this aircraft down is it's guns. It is only armed with one 20mm cannon and one 12.7mm MG when upgraded. Not counting gift aircraft, it has the worst guns of its tier. Another thing is its health. Just like other Russian aircraft the health is low, but not Japanese low. To use the aircraft effectively, use your maneuverability and speed to get behind enemies and bring your guns to bear. Do not head on with anyone because you will get destroyed very quick. Stick to lower altitude fights and make them come down to you.
