Description

GarageImage MiG-3-34.jpg


The MiG-3-34 is a rank II Russian fighter with a battle rating of 2.7 (AB) and 2.3 (RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.41.

The MiG-3-34 was built with the intention of making a fighter capable of fighting at high altitudes and this is reflected in the game. The MiG-3 is one of the few Soviet planes that fly decently at high altitudes, although still not as well as German or American planes. This gives the Soviets a hand in high altitude battles and gives them some defence against high-flying bombers. This plane has dual 20 mm that is powerful and accurate with the neat ability to equip "Armored-Targets" (Antitank) rounds.

General info

Flight Performance

The MIG 3-34 is not a turn fighter. It's a Boom & Zoom aircraft. It is a bit sluggish when turning, but the flaps help a lot. This aircraft climbs well. Upgrading helps a lot in this plane. Once upgraded it is enjoyable to fly though it may be a bit challenging to master, it is worth it.

Survivability and armour

The overall survivability isn't bad. The pilot is very vulnerable. The plane's only armour is on the seat (8 mm and 8.5 mm). The structure of the plane is good. It isn't anything special. It can take a few hits. The fuel tanks sometimes explode and catch fire.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: ShVAK (20 mm)

The MiG-3-34 is armed with:

  • 2 x 20 mm ShVAK cannons, nose-mounted (100 rpg = 200 total)

Usage in battles

This aircraft can be used in 2 ways:

As an anti-aircraft artillery and light vehicle destroyer, or as a Boom & Zoom aircraft.

Its cannons can easily destroy anti-aircraft artillery when attacked from an angle. The cannons can easily destroy anti-aircraft artillery trucks and armoured vehicles.

It can destroy aircraft, especially bombers and ground attack aircraft. You should any aircraft flying in a straight line target. You should stay clear of Spitfire-s and Zero-s. It is good in a head-on situations. You should target these planes: IL-2, B-25, Yak 2 KABB, Do 217...

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 2 x ShVak 20 mm cannons which are powerful at close range
  • Durable construction
  • Using flaps improve turn time

Cons:

  • Very long reload time
  • Not very manoeuvrable in turns
  • Pilot is vulnerable
  • No additional armaments

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:

  • reference to the series of the aircraft;
  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
