I haven't had the chance to put one up with no ammo in the QMB yet to see if they are still nearly indestructible.

They seem about the same to me. VK107 extra power and speed helps against 190s and Spit 25 pounders but loses a little nimbleness.

Took a Yak3 up against a '46 Me262 for schmits, and giggels http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
Didnt seem as nimble.
Would have to test some more though.

YaK has always been "The Final Frontier" for me. I think YaK1 and YaK7 can be competitive in an early Soviet-Nazi War setup

Yak3 VK-107 is the ultimate piston engine russian fighter no doubt about that - besides impressive performance that even bests the Yak-9U (one of the best performers in PF) it also fancys a high terminal dive speed, something terribly needed on russian planes throught whole war to give them the ability to catch up that run90s and run09s in a dive.

Other than that I didn't notice big difference from what was they like before. Yak-9U still pwnzores big time. And looks lovely (one of rare russian birds that do). http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

So far I've flown mostly the Yak-1 and Yak-9D online. They seem about the same or slightly better than before. The Yak-1 is still a bit of a pig but that seems to fit the historical description and I love flying it just the same. You can hold a 109F-2 in a 500m or less hard turn for several rotations at best before he stalls it and flops out and you can blast him. Thats amazing for not having any leading edge slats.

The Yak-9D seems competitive in 1943. I was able to get on the tail of a few FW190A-5's and blast them quite well.

The Yak-3 VK-107 is great except for the disappointing armament. Yak-9U still rocks!

SO nobody noticed a slower roll rate and doesn't turn as quite as before?

I didn't notice a difference too .

I'm glad for the Yak Vk107 , that thing is a beast , imagine if we had the one that was fitted with Vk108 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well perhaps it retains its energy a tad better , but i'm not sure , it might be a placebo effect , Yak series are beautiful planes , love them , all models .

But perhaps you are right , we never know , maybe a bit of testing should lighten up the case http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

No...hadn't noticed that at all. All planes are slightly less responsive in the roll rate but the Yak series is still well above average and generally better than the 109s and Spitfires.

Yaks are still squirrely.

I mean with regards to roll rate purely. In other attributes not nearly as much. Not until the Yak-3 or Yak-9U.

I do agree with Faustnik, still a bit squirely for me as well. The heavy torque is a killer because you're trimming all the time. Even the Tempest requires less trim and that has almost more than a 1000hp more on the engine compared to the Yak-1.
