It takes only one drink to get me drunk. The trouble is, I can't remember if it's the thirteenth or the fourteenth.

Jason might I suggest this would be a good time to remind posters a maximum of three pictures per finished build and a link to the build as we have done for previous GB's.  Helps at voting time.  Thanks!

Socialist Unity Aviation Collective (SUAC) MiG-3T
White 5, personal mount of Flight Leader Pavel Sadyrin
134 Escadrille, 131 Guards Regiment, Socialist Union Red Army Air Force,
Kotelnikovo, South Front, October, 1941

The MiG-3T took the basic MiG-3 airframe, added additional armour and adapted it to carry up to 220 kg of rockets or bombs. The internal armament was also changed, the 12.7mm UBS machine gun being omitted for a 20mm ShVAK cannon that fired through the propeller hub. To improve low altitude performance the MiG-3's AM-35  engine was replaced with the more powerful AM-38, which was geared to produce maximum power at lower altitudes. The result was a useful fighter-bomber that remained in production until late 1942.
