Great tier 8 plane

Pros

- Really good maneuverability at mid to Low altitudes

- Doesn't Bleed off energy when maneuvering

- Great Climb rate from the deck

 

 

Cons

- Low Firepower compared to other low and mid altitude planes

- Weak high altitude performance


 

Overall this is a very fun plane, Team up in flights of mid altitude fighters, multiroles or attack aircraft or you can fly solo and put your dogfighting skills to the test.

 

 

Not bad for a guy who only knows how to fly Heavy fighters

The Yak 15 was one of the planes I happily secured and was eager to fly.

I found it a great mid to low alt fighter as far as getting on target and evading enemy attacks.

I do miss the popular Yak heavy pop gun firepower, but find this a great bird to get many assists with and to escort Ga's in the upper tiers.

With it's high speed banking turns, combined with it's nimbleness and fantastic climb rate, it is not only fun to fly but a dangerous plane in combat.

I loved my Yak-15 and it's one of the planes that I will return to "someday".  I used it as a tool to grind to the Yak-19 which I loved in the 1.9 Common Test.  The issue is once I got to that plane in the real game, I realized how terrible I was in it.  

 

The Yak-15 in and of itself is a great plane to fly.  It was my first jet in the game and flying it reminded me of watching gun camera footage from the Korean War.  I learned how to dodge, duck and dodge in this plane and that skill has carried over to other low to mid alt planes.  

 

I never really faulted the plane in my low win rate, mostly myself.  I found myself more often than not alive, but alone with 3 to 4 enemy planes shooting me to pieces.  It does not usually carry a team, but is a clean-up fighter like no other, as long as you can clean up and don't have to carry.  Better pilots than me may disagree, and that is fine.  This plane and the Yak-9U are both come-back-to planes once I reach my other goals in the game.  

 

[Edit] Yagos2k15, forgot to say I got to see you fly this plane at least 2x against me and you know how to work the plane very well.  Videos or pointers on it would be much appreciated as I am sure the skills on this plane carry over to the Yak-19.

I'll try and put up a couple of battles.

Ok so here im going to post a battle that i flew with bearss in his IL10m, it was in the National Park map.

We started off by heading to the north ground target cluster to see if we could intercept their Attack aircraft before they could take out our AA guns, long story short we ended up outnumbered and under heavy fire. Watch and see how it ends.

Got me one too love the maneuverability , but hate the nerf bullets . Know the feeling of 4+ on ya at the end of a battle . Good when U have terrain to work with , and if it had more firepower would be unbeatable .
