MiG-3 or Yak-9

Lol Mig3 is the best fighter SU has. The yak and la7 do nothing the enemies fighting it can't do better. Get flak jacket gold first because regardless of choice you will be getting stomped by fw190s. The mig3 will hit and disable a module before you have to break and escape and it will at least escape unlike the higher tiers which can't run and cant turn.

As you should see from the current stats, in the mig you will turn as tight as the la7 and as usefully as a yak ie not tight enough.

You trade cannon armament for spawn cost which is a better deal when you most likely wont fire enough to down you enemy anyway.

I soon afford the Yak-9 but which would make the most sense to buy after using the stock recon plane?

buy a FW.

the Yak can't keep up with the new tier 3 fighters and the MIG 3 lacks the firepower and turn rate to be competitive in the FW flooded MM.

and you will be fighting mostly alone or with 2 other pilots on your team against 7+ GE fighters

in all honesty hold of a bit on buying SU planes

Don't even bother with medium fighters for SU. None of the medium fighters stand a chance against the focke wulf, which will most likely be the only other fighter plane you'll ever encounter in the skies since US and SU won't even try to fight them anymore. You're better off saving the credits unless you have infinite credits and like to die A LOT.

Only chance of beating them is if you're extremely good and they are very bad.  Which happens more often than not surprisingly because most pilots are bad... :D

 

But yeah a new Soviet pilot stands absolutely no chance.  Better off picking up a PTRD and practicing aiming for wings using the AA gun.

MIG-3 disapointment, it's horrible for air combat. With more than one enemy, you are certainly doomed and get shot down in seconds.

Yak was once a great plane but now it's 'something is better than nothing'. it's a good medium for bombing vehicles and infantry.

 

Thats all.

Dying in seconds in a smaller faster aircraft? Sounds like people still aren't boom and zooming.....

MiG 3 is completely useless against the US tier 3 medium. You can't run away from it nor out turn it.

Yak is useless against GE tier 3, a bit less so against US but still bad

 

so take your pick..

The mig is still lighting, a good long burst still kills and it's the only aircraft before the la7 that can chase tier 3 vertically without stalling. 

The down side currently is with the rebalance before the current one it's ability to survive endlessly on a single module is gone so no more running from enemies for 5 minutes under fire.

 Also cheaper so in a lost battle you don't pay for dying unlike the other mediums that demand a 2:1 kd to break even.
