FSX/P3D v3,v4v,5 Yak-1,1B. Design of the Yakovlev Yak-1 medium-altitude interceptor/fighter began in November 1938, and from it evolved a series of remarkable aircraft (produced in vast numbers) which made an important mark in the history of aviation. The French Normandie Niemen regiment flew Yak1b fighters in the spring of 1943 and their leading scorer considered the Yak1b to be a much better plane than the Spitfire MkII and MkV which he had flown. The strength of the Yak were that it was easy to fly, instilled confidence in its pilots, had a wide stable undercarriage, and was cheap and simple to produce. FSX/P3D Native models by A.F. Scrub.
