|Description||Yak's of the 812 IAP.
This skin pack introduces a themed pack featuring several Yak models. Almost every variant of the early to mid-war series Yak's, from Yak-1 to Yak-9T are included. Please pay attention when placing the BMP files to ensure the files will be in their proper folders.
YAK-7B (as the Yak-7UTI trainer, compatible with all Yak-7 variants in game)
YAK-7B late (place this skin into the Yak-9 folder)
The inspiration to this skin-cavalcade came after I read "Dragons on Bird Wings, the Combat History of the 812th Fighter Air Regiment Vol 1 by Vlad Antipov and Igor Utkin, Aviaeology 2004-2005." The skins are based on the wonderful high quality colour profiles of this book.
As an 'ordinary' fighter unit 812 IAP combat results surpassed many of the other known fighter units that had already gained the famed 'Guards' status, some more than once. By the war's end 812th IAP had destroyed more than 500 enemy aircraft, including a Me-262, and as a consequence this unit is among the top ten most efficient units of the Soviet VVS. It flew almost entirely the Yak fighters and was among other things the very unit field testing the fearsome Yak-9K armed with the 45 mm cannon.
