MiG-3 Aces of World War 2, Paperback / softback Book

MiG-3 Aces of World War 2 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Andrey Yurgenson

Part of the Aircraft of the Aces series


The MiG-1/3 family of fighters was built to satisfy a Soviet Air Force requirement for an advanced, fast, high-altitude fighter.

Entering service in the spring of 1941, the problematic MiG-1 had its handling issues rectified with the hasty production of the MiG-3.

Many of these were destroyed on the ground when the Germans launched Operation Barbarossa.

Nevertheless, enough examples survived to allow pilots such as Stepan Suprun and Aleksandr Pokryshkin to claim a number of victories in the type.

This book tells the complete story of the men who made ace in the first examples of the famous MiG fighter.
