Sample text

The main undercarriage legs were set at a higher angle intended to preclude noseovers, which lessened the danger of the machine turning turtle after a resolute application of wheel brakes. The second cockpit which was retained on the Yak-7 could be used for carrying maintenance personnel and cargoes during redeployment of air units, for bringing pilots back from the places of forced landings or for installing a long-range fuel tank; almost all of these options were subsequently implemented. The acceptance document stated: These special features of the Yak-7 made it a promising machine and made it possible to develop a number of versions' (sic; the use of the past tense in the quotation is incongruous - translator's note).

In the meantime, A Yakovlev's OKB continued the development of the prototype 1-30 - the Yak-3 'dooblyor' (second prototype) was completed in May 1941. The cockpit layout evolved on it was recommended as standard for all fighters of the Red Army Air Force. Obviously envisioning large-scale production, Yakovlev reverted to one-piece wooden wings without slats. Powered by the M105PD, the 'dooblyor' was damaged in an accident at LII and struck off charge. The work on the first prototype 1-30 was not yet completed at the outbreak of the war.

The Plant functioned like well-adjusted clockwork. However, on the night to 24th June 1943 a group of German bombers 36 forced their way to Saratov through the air defences and bombed the factory; considerable workshop area was destroyed in the resulting fire. By 13th September of that year, at the cost of incredible efforts, the Plant's personnel succeeded in restoring the volume of production completely to the pre-bombardment level. Yet the number of the Yak-1 s delivered to the Soviet Air Force was reduced by at least 500 machines.
