Aronin, G. S. - Brief description of the MiG-3 (1941)

Military Academy of Piloting and Navigation of the Red Air Force

The MiG-3 was the work of two talented aeronautical engineers, Artem Mikoyan and Mikhaïl Gourevitch. The two men studied the I-200 single-engine fighter, equipped with a Mikulin AM-35 in-line engine. In competition with the Yakovlev design office, the I-200 made its first flight on April 5, 1940 and immediately went into production under the designation of MiG-1. But, the MiG-1 was not a success: difficult to handle, it had insufficient armament. The development of the MiG-1 led to the MiG-3. Produced in series, this aircraft was used on a large scale during the German invasion of the USSR in 1941. Because of its limited performance, the MiG-3 could not compete with the German fighters. Indeed, he suffered from many defects. Its flying qualities were poor and its firepower insufficient. Production ceased in 1942. In total, approximately 3420 examples of the MiG-1 and MiG-3 types were produced. The MiG-3 remained in service in several units until spring 1943. Despite all the efforts made to solve its defects, it was replaced by better hunters from other design offices.
In 1941, the need for tutorials for the study of new air equipment, as well as the lack of documentation on aircraft modifications, forced the Aviation Technology Department to write brief descriptions of new aircraft. This description of the MiG-3 aircraft, carried out by the military engineer Aronin GS, is the first of these works, which was scheduled to be completed in the current year.
