How can you tell the difference between the two when you're zooming by one? I can barely tell the difference on the ground...any hints? I'm referring to the 1941 models. Thanks.

Yaks are smaller, have bubble canopys(except early ones). I can usually tell by the shape of the wings. And the Laggs just kinda look fat.

If it makes you feel any better, I have tough time as well telling these two apart.

The same way you tell Spits an Hurricanes apart...

yeah, i agree...yak-7s and lagg-3s look identical at first glance. Looking at them from the wing back helps...no tail wheel on the Lagg, different rudder/fin and rear fuse shape.
But you did say zooming by ---- so its kinda tough to pick out details. like the previous poster said: red star = dead star...doesn't matter what it's painted on. =)

From my memory of flying both aircraft, you'll be zooming by the LaGG a lot quicker than you'll be passing the Yak /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Both are über /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Lagg 3 '41 is even more über, it turns faster than Yak1 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif So call for backup, and shoot them /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

If you are zooming by one it should already be enveloped in flames or descending in a sprinkle of parts, in which case it doesn't matter.
