I think it should have 2 UBS, not one

"the Yak-9M was in production. This standard version was armed with one 20mm cannon and two .50 cal. machine guns"

http://www.chuckhawks.com/YAK-9.htm

"The single engine Yak-9 operated with a wide variety of armament for use in anti-tank, light bomber and long-range escort roles, first seeing combat during the Battle of Stalingrad. The standard version, the Yak-9M, had 20mm cannon and two 12.7mm machine guns"

i'd also like to know, in the game, does it have the M-105pf engine like Yak-9 or the M-105pf2 like Yak-3?

I thought it was basically a Yak-9T with 20mm instead of the NS-37...

well the Yak9T is basically a Yak-9 with a NS-37 no? :P

you can mount a NS-37 too on the Yak 9M just check it out in aircraft customization

I dont know if the sources are accurate, but everywhere I read about the Yak 9M it mentionned 2 UBS not only one...

Jak-9m is just a Jak-9d with the cockpit moved back like the Jak-9t for ease of production.
SOVIET COMBAT AIRCRAFT OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR / VOLUME ONE / SINGLE ENGINED FIGHTERS by Yefin Gordon and Dmitri Kahzanov, Midland Publishing, 1998

It also states that the second 12,7mm was not fitted until the Jak-9u.

Is anyone liking the Yak-9M as much as I am. Its nice and light like the Yak-9D but with more speed like the Yak-9U. Sort of a nice middle ground...

I like it.

And Yak-9T is a Yak-9D with cockpit moved back (like 9DD) and a NS-37 in the hub http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif. They're more equal than you might think http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif. The Yak-9M was made because the back cockpit in the Yak-9DD and 9T proved to increase turn manoeuverability at the cost of stability (=stall like P-39, but very little http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif).

Jak-9t was based on the Jak-9, not the Jak-9D.
