Abstract

THE machine is described from Finnish sources as satisfactory in horizontal flight, but with poor acceleration and there is a tendency to go into a spin in sharp turns. Attempts have been made to improve the flying qualities by reducing the armament; the wings have also been fitted with fixed slots to improve the landing qualities while, in the latest models, automatic slots have been tried. Visibility is good forward and on either side, but insufficient to the rear. The type appears to possess better combat qualities than the earlier MIG‐3 fighter.
