[edit] Information

Translation from russian description :

"Yak-3 was the easiest to fly and most maneuverable fighter aircraft, not only in the the family of "Yak", but also among the planes that fought all the World War II fronts. After the appearance of Yak-3 at the front German aces morale and fighting spirit were dealt a blow from which they were not able to recover before the end of the war. Participating in hostilities at the final stage of the war, the Yak-3 played an important role in the final defeat of air forces of Nazi Germany."

This Russian printed DVD edition of the original episode has been renamed "Yak-3" but actually it chronicles "The Great Patriotic War" as the original title says.
