In an attempt to increase performance while avoiding the overheating problems of the VK-107 and VK-108 liquid cooled engine variants, the single "Yak-3M-82" was built, fitted with the Shvetsov M-82 two-row fourteen cylinder radial engine, used on the La-5 fighter, and first flown in May 1945. Performance was very good and the aircraft was extremely agile, but with jet fighters coming on line, there was no push to develop the concept further, and the project was abandoned in October 1945. One test pilot classified it “as the most manoeuvrable fighter in the world” after one flight.

This is a straight forward development of my Fox Four AI 'Annie' to a much-improved version 4.0. 'Annie' is a real treat to fly with exceptional low-speed and short-field capabilities. She is wearing a North Korean skin.** **IMPORTANT NOTE: Skins for previous versions of the TR_AN-2 will not fit this version. For that reason the download includes two additonal skins by Bub that have been modified to fit this version....Russian Yellow 8 and Russian White 39.

The ER-2 (sometimes called Yer-2 or Jer-2) went into production in late 1940. A total of approx. 458 examples being built. The Er-2 was popular in service with its crews, and participated in many heroic encounters. Er-2s played a key role in the Defense of Moscow, took part in the bombing of Berlin, and conducted very long duration patrols over the Baltic coastline, almost always without escort. Examples of both major versions were still in service in 1945 with several Regiments, and production of the type continued after the War with the Er-2ON transport.rn rnrnCredits:rnModel by William DickensrnAirfile by Pedro Paulo RezendernPaint Scheme by L.M.
