The MiG-3 is a Russian fighter available as part of Battle of Moscow.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The aircraft's 12.7mm machine guns are extremely powerful, and will severely damage most aircraft in a few hits. They seem to have an incendiary round in the belt, and so set engines alight, as well as fuel. A well aimed burst at the wing root of fighters from the synchronised UB 12.7mms will almost certainly cut the wire within the wing, if not the wing itself. It also has decent energy retention if you ever find yourself turn-fighting a 109, and as such can high-yoyo quite well.
