Description

The LaGG-3-11 is a rank II Soviet fighter with a battle rating of 2.3 (AB/SB) and 2.0 (RB). This aircraft was introduced in Update 1.33.

General info

Like the other LaGG-3 models, the 3-11 has the advantage of an extremely low BR and cannon armament. The top speed is comparatively high when put against planes such as the P-36G or Ki-43-II. The climb rate is also quite good, attributed to the high max speed and acceleration. However, the turn rate and elevator are extremely poor. Energy fighting is a must when it comes to the LaGG-3.

Since the LaGG-3 has cannon armament, a 2-4 second burst is all that is needed to shred an enemy plane. Use Ground Target belts for the best effect with both the ShVAK and Berezin UB.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

History

The LaGG-3-11 was a Soviet fighter aircraft of World War II. It was one of the most modern aircraft available to the Soviet Air Force at the time of Germany's invasion in 1941. The plane was produced 1941–1944 and first took flight 28 March 1940. Approximately 6,528 LaGG-3-11's were made, and designed by V. P. Gorbunov.

In-game description

As a result of further work on transforming the LaGG from a "pure" fighter into a light attack aircraft, the LaGG 3 Series 11 appeared at the turn of 1941–1942. It had missile equipment and DZ-40 bomb racks for two bombs weighing up to 100 kg.

To reduce the plane's weight and finally increase its flight characteristics to acceptable levels, the series 11 completely lacked outboard fuel tanks, sacrificing flight range for speed. Suspended fuel tanks were intended for use when necessary, but in practice, they were only installed on a small batch of fighters made for the navy.

The following bombs could be suspended on the DZ-40 bomb racks underneath the wing: FAB-50 and FAB-100 general-purpose bombs, AO-25 fragmenting bombs and VAP-6M aerial spray instruments. These bomb racks could also carry ZAP-6 incendiary aerial instruments containing 38 liters of incendiary fuel each, or PSB-100 suspended fuel tanks containing up to 100 liters of gasoline.

RO-82 launchers for RS-82 rockets were also installed under the wing. The standard design allowed for the installation of six RO-82 launchers. Combat units armed the LaGG-3 with rockets themselves, so the number of rockets varied between four to eight RS-82 rockets.

Several planes were equipped with RO-132 rocket launchers instead of the RO-82, in order to launch the more powerful RS-132 rockets.

The LaGG-3 Series 11 went into production at the end of 1941. The first LaGG-3 Series 11 fighter-bombers took part in combat in the final stage of the Battle of Moscow, on the Kalinin front. Use of the LaGG-3 as a fighter-bomber and attack aircraft was relatively successful, as the LaGG-3 planes demonstrated higher combat survivability than other types of fighters.

Later on, the LaGG-3 Series 11 was replaced by the Series 23 in manufacturing facilities. The Series 23 was practically identical to the Series 11 and had the same combat characteristics. Their production continued from the end of the winter of 1942 to the summer of 1942 and was the peak period of LaGG-3 fighter manufacturing in terms of quantity.
