Polish Wings 20: Yakovlev Yak-1, Yak-3, Yak-7, Yak-9 (Paperback)

Wojciech Zmyslony


This new book in the popular Polish Wings series tells the story of the most famous family of Soviet fighter aircraft. It covers Yak-1, Yak-3, Yak-7 and Yak-9 deployed in the Polish Air Force during WWII and in late 40s. The Yakovlev Yak-1 was a World War II Soviet fighter aircraft, produced from early 1940, a single-seat monoplane with a composite structure and wooden wings. The Yak-1 was extremely manoeuvrable, fast and well armed, and, just as importantly, it was easy to maintain and reliable. It formed an excellent basis for subsequent developments from the Yakovlev bureau. In fact it was the founder of a family of aircraft, with a total of 37,000 variants being built. A rarely documented aspect of WW2 and post-war aviation history. Essential reading for aviation enthusiasts & scale aero-modellers.
