[In Development] Yak-1

The single-engine Yakovlev Yak-1 monoplane was the first aircraft designed by the Soviet Yakovlev design bureau. Aimed at replacing the outdated Polikarpov aircraft, such as the I-15 and I-16, the Yak-1 (under the designation I-26) had its first flight on 13.

With a ground level speed of 530 km/h the aircraft was fairly maneuverable and its armament of one 20 mm SHVAK cannon and two 7.62 mm SHKAS machine guns offered good firepower. The Yak-1 saw famous service with the Normandie-Niemen, a French volunteer fighter group within the Soviet Air Forces.
