The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

Tactics

Use this aircraft as a dogfighter, this is what Yaks are made for. In AB, the plane is very effective because of its armament. In RB, don't climb at full-power. Keep your engine at about 85%. In SB, the Yak-7B is good, especially if you use the rockets. Otherwise the Yak-1B will be a better choice.

First researches should be the Ammunitions and the Radiator. Then, it's up to the player. The bombs are very light (50kg) and almost useless. The rockets are the best choice for the payload. The aircraft can carry 6 rockets that can be fired independently in Arcade but only by 2 in RB and SB. Those rockets can kill armored targets such as light and medium tanks. They are a very good choice in Tank Realistic Battles.
