looking for some old posts that gave tips on flying the mig 3. I'm posting here because I didn't have any luck with the search function here. Maybe i just don't know how to use it right.
Of course as flight models have ben tweeaked if anyone cvare to share their ideas for flying the Mig I would really enjoy that!
Thanks,

Stay at high altitudes (above 5,000 meters) if at all possible. That's unless of course you are flying the AM-38 powered MiG-3, in which case you're better off at low altitude. Either way the MiG-3 is more at home at higher speeds as well. It doesn't turn as well as any of the other Russian fighters or their Lend-Lease buddies (i.e. Hurricane, P-40, P-39, etc.). Also, I tend to use the wing-mounted gunpods because it really helps your firepower, which isn't as lethal as many of the other planes. If you use it correctly though you will do some damange and get some kills.

The main rules with the regular MiG-3 variants (I prefer the MiG-3ud overall) is to stay fast and if possible high up.

You can outrun most early to mi-war planes in the MiG-3 so it's good for BnZ attacks.

Most importantly, don't lose your energy.

Can't dive with the MiG, so not so much BnZ as Energy fighting. Keep speed high, always in a position to climb fast.

What I do in fights greater than 1v1 (especially large fights) is use speed to attack enemies who are behind friendlies.
