Modules and improvements

Grind for all the Flight Performance and Survivability modules so you can get this plane to actually go fast, only then you can grind the Weaponry modules. Researching Flight Performance and Survivability modules forces you to learn how to aim and lead your targets with the 23 mm cannon that is going to be used in jets and props in higher battle ratings, like the Mig-9 and the Yak-15.
