From its predecessor, the Yak-3 is less wing (with an area of ​​14, 85 square meters instead of the 17, 15) with the same dimensions of the fuselage and a number of aerodynamic and structural improvements. Oil cooler, which was located under the engine before the VC-105PF2, was moved to the wing, and its intake was abolished and replaced with inlets to wear wings. Empty weight Yak-3 was only 2105 kg take-off - 2650 kg.
It was one of the lightest fighter in the world of the first half of the forties. High speed (over 650 km / h with the engine VC-105PF2 and 720-740 km / h with engine VC-107 and VC-108), an excellent rate of climb (when dialing 5 thous. M - 4, 1 minute, good ceiling (11 800 m) and maneuverability, ease of piloting done Yak-3 favorite airplane fighter pilots. The design of the Yak-3 was embodied experience of the team, has created a number of non-combat vehicles and directions pilots that they fought to achieve the industry, which gave designers materials allowed to design a car with a wing loading close to 200 kg / m2. In conclusion, the Air Force Institute noted that the Yak-3 with an engine VK-107A & quot; ... on the basic performance data in a range of heights from the ground to the practical ceiling is the best-known domestic and foreign fighter & quot ;. factory built 4848 Yak-3.
