{detailed description}This is the illustrated story of the MiG-1 & 3 - the first design to bear the "signature" of Artem Ivanovich Mikoyan and Mikhail Iossipovitch Gurevich, who made MiG a worldwide name. Even today, after the death of both men, the designation MiG is used for the quintessential Russian fighter. In 1940, the MiG-1 was an innovative and ground-breaking radical aircraft: a small, slim low-wing monoplane with a powerful but heavy engine. Difficult to fly, it was the foundation upon which the MiG Bureau made their first step to designing the best Soviet fighters.
The book examines the MiG-3's full history, covering how the initial problems were overcome, and how, from 1941 to 1943, the fighter fulfilled its potential in combat, being equal to all adversaries.
This work on the first new Soviet fighter of World War Two features: scale plans; photos and drawings from technical manuals; superb colour illustrations of camouflage and markings; walk-around colour photographs of surviving aircraft; rare black and white archive photographs from World War Two. It is essential reading for aviation history enthusiasts and scale modellers.
