The Yak 1 was one of the aircraft that turned the tide of the German Invasion of Russia.
It was a single seated mono-plane and was extremely manouverable  and fast.
It's fuselage was made of welded steel tubes and fabric- faced plywood, it was light and sturdy.
The Yak 1 was produced from early 1940 and was very well armed.
