Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Top armament is all-autocannon loadout, landing shells consistently will tear apart other fighters
  • Top armament has outstanding gun range, can get away with mid-range sniping
  • Respectable airspeed and engine performance for its tier
  • 60 more hitpoints than the Yak-1m with the top airframe


Cons:


  • Will frequently get its wings and tail knocked out due to calibers sported by foreign planes it sees
  • Can easily become a Flying Match stick if you're not careful
  • Armament feels somewhat lacking when engaging tier VIII ground attack craft, especially IL-20s
