Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3 - Part I
The Mikoyan MiG-3 saw service in WW2 with the Soviet Air Force from 1940. It was a successful fighter despite some teething troubles with oil and fuel pumps at high altitude. It was very fast at high level - over 400mph, but due to battle conditions was often forced into low-level and even ground attack roles which it was not designed for. The MiG-3 effectively went out of production when Mikulin discontinued it's AM-35 engine to concentrate on production of the AM-38 for the Shturmovik.

The MiG-3 was armed with 1 x 12.7mm, and 2 x 7.62mm machine guns. It was also adapted to carry rockets and bombs.
