MiG-3 – Warbird Wednesday Episode #88

Welcome to Warbird Wednesday! Today, we’re visiting a well-armed Soviet aircraft, the MiG-3. The MiG-3 was a fighter and interceptor used during WWII that was quick and designed for high altitude. However, most of the combat over the Eastern Front generally took place in lower altitudes causing the aircraft to lose its speed advantage and become one of the highest loss-rate percentages of any soviet fighter aircraft in the war.
