Here it is, the next premium offering coming to the game.  The Yak-3T is a tier VII Soviet light fighter.  How does she measure up to the already crowded Russian airspace at tier VII?  Very well, I must say.

 

The Yak-3T is a much more orthodox and traditional Russian fighter over the Yak-3RD, Kostikov 302 and La-9RD; this Yak is not a mixed propulsion aircraft and relies on the Russian classics for battle performance:  Agility and Firepower.  The Yak-3T has both in surplus amounts.  Her turning ability is among the best in tier, and her roll rate is exceptionally good as well.  Her heaviest gun is placed centrally placed in the hub with two lighter 20mm cannon mounted above the engine and firing through the prop.  She packs the biggest punch at close range inside of 400 meters, but the big gun can register hits much further out, though its accuracy is problematic the farther away your target is.  If your thing is classic Russian furballing this aircraft is definitely one you should consider over the others offered for Soviet pilots at this tier.  There's nothing fancy, no gimmick, just a whole lot more of what you've already been doing since the LaGG-3.

 

For equipment and pilot skills I recommend anything that increases outgoing damage and increases her agility.  For consumables you may want to consider a Fire Extinguisher and anything that reduces fire chance.

 

Good hunting!  :honoring:
