In Update 1.6, we're introducing a new tree of high-altitude, high-speed fighter aircraft: the Soviet Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG line. Let us know what you think of these planes, and how they perform against other fighters in their tier!

I am very pleased with the MIG line... only thing i could suggest, is add the Mig - I to tier IV.

MiG-3 - okay, so far, what I've managed to get with matches not against other MiG-3's and flying against it, this seems to be exact same and potentially a theme throughout the line as the I-220. Against the yak line at least had altitude to maintain speed and performance. While against this aircraft, it seems like other high altitude planes have little if any match for it. The only real apparent edges are fire power and hit points, not anything that really helps balance things out. The migs can out run them, and out turn them. Unless you can get them in a single head on pass, and not take too much critical engine damage, or blitz it from a different angle and get them before they react, they win the fight. They can stay on a planes tail like glue. It's roughly the same as if fighting a zero with a mustangs engine at the zero's altitude. The only possible weakness I've found so far is that they can stall in a climb fairly easy above optimum, but still not much of one.

 

I 210 (reserved for feedback after testing)

 

I-220 - currently, I have only fought against this plane and looked at its stats vs the other two high fliers. It flies as high, but has more speed, more mobility, and more firepower, and comparable hit points. So far my experiences against this aircraft feels like a throw back to points in other patches of "Clearly Russian planes are allowed to be OP". This may change after flying it - I find it highly unlikely though. This plane should really have something dialed back so that it loses in more then something like dive speed.

I need to test some more, but my initial thoughts are that the tiers V and VI seem both balanced and unique. Their advantages are obvious, altitude and maneuverability, but the disadvantages are that they are slow planes. I was in my 190D and I dove to the sea and left the trailing MiG in the dust. They have the potential for fast speeds, but I find that more often than not, I am down at slow speeds in these planes. I think the energy isn't all that good. Dive characteristics are shaky too. The way to kill these buggers is to zoom right on past them but deliver a storm of bullets along the way. They should be easier targets for US heavies, brit heavies, Corsairs and Fw's, while being tricker targets for 109's, P51's, A6M's, and La's.

 

Upon further playing of MiG's, they are not B&Z planes. They can do a dive attack, once. They have good maneuverability, but all that turning brings down the airspeed quite a bit. I consistently end up moving pretty slow after engagements. And airspeed is not retained after a big dive like it is in Fw's or US planes. And climbing to the stratosphere isn't an option either with the slow climb rate.

 

Mig's bring the T&B up to the high altitude. Overall, I think their main effect will be reducing the safe haven of a high altitude getaway while not greatly diminishing the overall effectiveness of the B&Z moves. Basically B&Z'ers are still effective, but they don't have that continual escape option as much anymore. I actually think that strategically, the MiG's were probably the best line to add right now to mix up the game.

I hope it doesn't sound like I'm whining in my posts 

And why do we balance???

I do not see any way how MiG can beat Messerschmitt or even Mustang. And this apply for every tier.

Just fun planes - nothing more.

MiG-9 and MiG-15 are especially bad.

Best one is I-210 but still nothing special.

I found them to be pretty good planes. They don't fly like other planes though. Just cause they have altitude doesn't mean they fly B&Z. They beat mustangs and 109's by not playing their energy games and waiting for them up at high altitude, where they get on their tail and blast away.

 

It's kinda like the A6M's. You don't chase planes, you watch them come to you.

 

I voted balanced for all of them.

Other than having an altitude advantage, I don't see how the top tier MiG can hold a candle to the La.

Am I missing something?

The tier 10 La has superior firepower (slightly), speed and maneuverability.  Is the MiG's greater altitude that huge of an asset?

Did not have much time to test last night, but got to run the MiG-3 a bit.  Firepower-wise it seemed a bit weak for its tier, especially stock...but it is otherwise decently fast and maneuverable.  Will be running further testing later on, but it seemed to be, if nothing else, a fun plane so far.

Ran another test on the plane: despite the weak firepower, it can compete well with 109e's.  Energy retention is average, but it can maintain a vertical turn fight reasonably well.

 

I-210: A pretty good plane, with a similar weapon loadout to the LA-5.  The choice between the 3 12.7mm and the 2 20mm is up to personal preference I feel: both are adequate for taking on lights.  The lower caliber gives 1 second better average turn speed, so if you like better turning it is a good choice.  Against heavies, the 20mm is better option though (no real hit to airspeed between the two).  Again, it performs reasonably well at high altitude, and feels competitive with the 51a and 109f.

 

I-220: currently testing . . .

 

I-250: . . .

 

MiG-9: . . .

 

MiG-15b: Have not tested yet, but seems to be the only tier X with multiple weapon calibers (37mm mount and 2 23mm).  It out to be interesting.

 

---will continue updating this post with my feedback--
