MiG 3

Postby Sloop » Sat Sep 26, 2015 10:01 am

Without question one of the prettiest fighters to come out of WW-II was Russia's rakish little MiG-3. Not the best known of Russian combatants, it nevertheless was an important player in the air war on the Eastern Front. You will find a major feature on this type in the latest Classic Wings! (and sorry for those who already saw this when it went up very briefly during the week and came down again. We're pleased to present it again now.)
