Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3: An engines’ question.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3: An engines' question.

The MiG-1/3 was the less successful of the three Soviet modern fighters being built when German invaded the USSR. This fighter family’s main drawbacks were it tricky handling qualities and their good performance in the the wrong envelope -it was an outstanding high-altitude fighter while the battles were fought lower. The MiG-3’s found nevertheless takers, specially by the Soviet Air Defence Forces (PVO) and at rear areas. To complicate things, its high-altitude engine was canceled due to the dire of Sturmovik’s engine demands and that meant the end of its production.
