Yakovlev Yak 9 Model Details
When the German Army swept into Russia in June, 1941, Luftwaffe chief Herman Goering assured the generals that Germany would destroy Russia rsquo;s air defense capability. They very nearly succeeded. Caught by surprise, Russia rsquo;s air force was decimated on the ground and in the air. Moving his design and manufacturing facilities east of the Ural Mountains, Alexander Yakovlev lsquo;s design bureau began production of the Yak-9 in 1942, with delivery of the light, versatile craft to fighter regiments by October of that year. Eventually, a record 16,769 Yak-9 rsquo;s of all models would be built.
The single engine Yak-9 operated with a wide variety of armament for use in anti-tank, light bomber and long-range escort roles, first seeing combat during the Battle of Stalingrad. The standard version, the Yak-9M, had 20mm cannon and two 12.7mm machine guns. As one German survivor of the air battles over Russia stated, The Yak was no match for the ME-109 but there were always so many hellip;they swarmed like bees whenever we showed up. As the war progressed more advanced models made their debut:
Production ceased in 1947, but not before a number of communist-bloc countries took delivery of later models. There are several static Yak-9 rsquo;s in private hands today, and beginning in 1996, several airworthy Russian-built replicas have been built.
